    Match Report by Mike Payne

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England never recovered after going two goals down in the first half hour. Gary Lineker pulled one back before half-time, but Littbarski was again a thorn in England's side and his second goal of the match clinched a convincing victory for the Germans. Neil Webb became the 1000th player to be capped by England when coming on as substitute for Glenn Hoddle in the sixty-fourth minute. 'You cannot give a team like West Germany a two-goal start and hope to win,' was the after-match appraisal from Bobby Robson, who came in for the anticipated criticism from the 'Robson-must-go' campaigners.
