    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Tour Report by Norman Giller

Like his predecessor Bobby Robson, Graham Taylor reluctantly inherited a 'Down Under' tour that did little for him apart from provide some fresh scenery. An own goal five minutes before half-time gave England victory over Australia in Sydney, and an injury-time goal by Gary Lineker saved blushes in the first match against New Zealand in Auckland. A goal in each half by Stuart Pearce and David Hirst gave England a 2-0 victory in the return match in Wellington. Hirst was one of six players awarded their first caps during the tour, along with John Salako, Earl Barrett, Brian Deane, Mark Walters and Gary Charles.
