    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

First-half goals from Terry Butcher and Glenn Hoddle gave England the edge in a fiercely fought match for the Sir Stanley Rous Cup. Scotland got back into the game when Graeme Souness scored from the penalty spot after Terry Butcher had upended Charlie Nicholas, but the England defence held out for a confidence-boosting victory before their World Cup journey to Mexico. England had stretched their unbeaten run to nine games, and their two best players - Bryan Robson and Gary Lineker - were both set to return after injury.
