    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

A rare defensive blunder by Kenny Sansom led to Carlos Manuel scoring the winning goal for Portugal in the second-half of a disappointing World Cup opener. Gary Lineker played with his sprained wrist strapped, and Bryan Robson came off after seventy-five minutes to protect his shoulder. England created enough chances to have won the match comfortably, but they lacked finishing finesse. 'A shocking start,' admitted a grim-faced Bobby Robson, knowing that the vultures were ready to swoop at the first opportunity.
