Notes

  • Play-offEngland and USSR were inseparable after the group stage. They were equal on points, goal difference and goals scored and the match between the two was a 2-2 draw. A hastily arranged play-off was planned. USSR won 1-0 and progressed to the quarterfinals where they would lose to the hosts Sweden. England headed home.
