    Match Report by Mike Payne


    Match Report by Norman Giller

Sweden, fresh from finishing third in World Cup 94, were 3-1 clear and coasting when stunned by two goals in the last two minutes by David Platt and Darren Anderton. England's first goal in front of an enthusiastic Elland Road crowd was scored by Teddy Sheringham, the first of his international career. The Houdini-style escape by England saved the unbeaten record of Terry Venables, who seemed to be a manager blessed with luck. It was the first time England had conceded three goals at Wembley since West Germany beat Sir Alf Ramsey's team 3-1 in a 1972 European championship qualifying tie.
