    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England trailed to a thirty-fourth minute goal following a careless mix-up between Des Walker and John Barnes. Substitute Ian Wright scored his first goal for England in nine appearances in the eighty-fourth minute to salvage a World Cup point that was desperately needed. There was new subtlety in the England attack with the introduction of Tottenham's gifted forward Teddy Sheringham. 'It is now vital that we also get at least a point in Norway next week,' said Graham Taylor. 'Our destiny is in our own hands, and if we play to out full potential there is no doubt at all that we can qualify for the finals.'
