    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

A convincing victory over World Cup hosts Mexico in a warm-up match was spoilt by the sight of skipper Bryan Robson going off with a dislocated shoulder. Mark Hateley gave England an early 2-0 lead with two magnificent headers, and the third victory-clinching goal was Peter Beardsley's first for England.
