    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

The Neville brothers became the first siblings to represent England since the Charltons, and there was also a debut cap for Aston Villa's Ugo Ehiogu in this first international against China. The Far East tour was designed as a gentle warm-up tour before the high pressure of the European championship finals at home. England won in a canter to chalk up their first back to back wins since Terry Venables took over the managerial reins. Two goals from Nick Barmby and a third from Paul Gascoigne clinched victory that was even easier than the scoreline suggests.
