    Match Report by Mike Payne


    Match Report by Norman Giller

England regained some dignity with a draw against Brazil thanks to a headed goal by David Platt, who scored with his first touch after coming on as a half-time substitute for David Batty. Tim Flowers made an exceptional debut in the England goal, making a series of superb saves. He stopped at least three certain goals before Brazil forced an equalizer in the seventy-sixth minute when Santos scored from close range after England had failed to clear a corner. The game attracted 54,000 spectators to the Robert Kennedy Stadium in Washington, a sign that the 1994 World Cup finals would pull in the crowds.
