Notes

  • Missed Penalty: Trevor Francis1st miss from 1st taken (0.0%). England's 65th overall. Buther was brought down in the area and Francis had to take the penalty twice. First time he scored but the referee disallowed the goal because he had not blown the whistle. He then carded Francis and the re-take was hit over the bar.
