  • Assist: Steve Coppell. "England duly scored on the quarter hour. Coppell's early pass put Woodcock through a square defence in the inside right position. Arconada came off his line and narrowed the angle but Woodcock struck a cleanly hit, almost matter-of-fact, shot past him." Tony Woodcock3rd of 16 goals. Right-footed from 12 yards., 16' 15:33
  • Assist: Steve Coppell. "England increased their lead in the 65th minute with an excellent movement from end to end. The ball flowed from Thompson to Wilkins and on to Coppell, who sidestepped Gordillo before producing a marvellous pass which gave Francis the chance to swerve away from Guisasola and score." Trevor Francis5th of 12 goals. Right-footed from 12 yards., 65' 64:35

Notes

  • Disallowed GoalTrevor Francis has the ball in the net after 40 minutes (39:46) but the referee had already blown his whistle for a foul by Kennedy in the build up.
  • Player InjuryPhil Neal is chopped down by Carrasco in the 81st minute (80:47) following an England corner. Neither the referee nor the assistant stops play. Neal can't continue and is evetually replaced by Hughes.
