Notes

  • Penalty: Phil Neal1st scored from 1 taken (100.0%). England's 61st overall. From a Barnes cross on the left Keegan seems to be fairly challenged for the ball at the far post by Tóth and Gujdár however, the referee blows for a penalty. On replay the ball does seem to strike Tóth arm as he jumped but it is harsh. Neal smashes the ball to the keepers left. Gujdár had no chance.
