    Match Report by Mike Payne


    Match Report by Norman Giller

England finished the tournament in bottom place after losing 2-1 to world champions Germany in a match played indoors on grass. David Platt again scored England's goal, his twelfth in fourteen games and his twentieth for England in total. It was England's sixth match without a win, their worst run for twelve years. Effenberg gave the Germans the lead in the twenty-sixth minute immediately after Platt had shaved the bar with a header. Platt equalized late in the first-half when he got himself perfectly positioned to steer in a Paul Ince cross. The Germans clinched victory and the tournament trophy when Jurgen Klinsmann tapped the loose ball home in the fifty-fourth minute after Nigel Martyn had done well to parry a scorching shot from Hans Riedle. England came out of the match with credit because they had the German defence fully stretched for long periods, but Graham Taylor returned home knowing he was living on borrowed time. The press were merciless in their criticism of his tactics. 'I was made to feel like Public Enemy Number One,' he said later.
