    Match Report by Norman Giller

Just one scoring chance came Gary Lineker's way in this tough and tense European championship qualifier and he tucked it away with tremendous style, volleying the ball into the net on the turn in the seventy-seventh minute. It equalised a thirty-second minute Polish goal that went into the net off Gary Mabbutt and it clinched England's place in the European championship finals. Andy Gray, Andy Sinton and Tony Daley won their first caps.
