    Match Report by Norman Giller

England's final warm-up match before the European championship finals in Sweden developed into a nightmare, with both John Barnes and Gary Stevens sustaining injuries that knocked them out of the tournament. Yet again England had to come from behind after Finland had taken a twenty-seventh minute lead from a harshly awarded penalty against Trevor Steven. Following a procession of missed chances, David Platt was on target seconds before half-time. It was Platt, recently signed by Juventus from Bari, who scored the winner in the sixty-second minute.
