    Match Report by Mike Payne


    Match Report by Norman Giller

How ironic that the best performance to date by England under the Terry Venables banner coincided with the first defeat for the man dubbed 'El Tel' because of his experiences as manager of Barcelona. England were outstanding in the first-half, and at the peak of their power took the lead against the world champions when Graeme Le Saux scored with a crashing volley. Brazil pressed the accelerator in the second-half and in a purple patch scored three goals that left the England defenders breathless from chasing shadows.  But for an hour England had more than held their own against the best team in the world, and Venables took hope from the performance that he could make a proper challenge for the European championship when it was staged in England a year later.
