    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England created enough chances to have held a comfortable lead long before Riedle headed West Germany into the lead a minute before half-time. There was much to applaud in England's approach work, but their finishing was feeble. Graham Taylor tried to rectify the situation by sending on new caps Paul Stewart and Paul Merson, but it was the world champions who came closest to scoring in the second-half when Lothar Matthaus brought out the best in Chris Woods with a thirty-yard drive. It was the first defeat of Taylor's reign after an unbeaten run of twelve matches.
