    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

A much-changed England twice came back from a goal down to force a draw against a talented Czechoslovakian team. It was a match of mistakes in both goal areas, and a particularly unhappy game for Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman, whose fumbling form led to him losing his number two spot in the European championship squad. Highbury team-mates Paul Merson and Martin Keown both scored their first goals for England, Merson equalizing in the twenty-eighth minute and Keown scoring with a spectacular shot in the sixty-sixth minute after an appalling error by Seaman had let the Czechs in for their second goal on the hour.
