  • Assist: Kenny Sansom. "Robson played [a] free kick short to Lee, who swung the ball to Neal. The right back played it on, Sansom was in a good position to nod it forward and down and Woodcock's ability to find space quickly did the rest. He swerved away from the advancing Saraganis and rolled the ball inside the near post." Tony Woodcock9th of 16 goals, 2'
  • Assist: Alvin Martin. "However in the 63rd minute England went further ahead. Mariner just failed to reach a high through ball from Martin, but Woodcock had already started a diagonal run through the defence and after gaining possession he raced clear before placing a precise shot past Saraganis." Tony Woodcock10th of 16 goals, 63'
  • Assist: Bryan Robson. "Five minutes later the Greek goalkeeper handled the ball outside the penalty area - a sending-off offence in England - Woodcock touched the freekick to Robson, who pushed the ball to Lee and the little Liverpool player's low shot caught a defender, leaving Saraganis completely stranded." Sammy Lee1st of 2 goals, 68'
