    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

A diving header by Gary Lineker gave England a first-half lead against a young, experimental Brazilian team that showed flourishes of the skilful football that would have pleased their ancestors. It was Lineker's nineteenth goal in twenty matches, but this did not save him from being substituted by Mark Hateley as Bobby Robson attempted to expose Brazil's weakness in the air. Marindinha, later of Newcastle, scored Brazil's deserved equaliser in an exciting Rous Cup match. Stuart Pearce made his international bow at left-back for the first of his seventy-eight caps.
