    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England were two goals up in eight minutes through John Barnes and Gary Lineker, and both players added a goal each before half-time on a rain-saturated Wembley pitch. Bryan Robson deflected a Neil Webb shot into the Turkish net to make it 5-0 and Peter Beardsley headed the sixth goal before Lineker completed his fourth international hat-trick in the seventy-first minute. It was Webb, playing in his first full international, who completed the massacre with a rasping volley as England moved to the top of their European championship qualifying table.
