  • "Duxbury was a little unlucky for the first, soon after half time, when he trod on the ball as he attempted to stop Litovchenko's long pass reaching Gotsanov, one of the Soviet substitutes, who ran clear to beat Shilton." Sergey Gotsmanov, 51'50:11
  • "The second goal was correctly described by the England manager as "just awful." Dasayev's clearance was headed on to Blokhin by Protasov, another substitute, and after Shilton had pushed away Blokhin's shot, Protasov sprinted through unchallenged to score from the rebound only three minutes after coming on the field." Oleh Protasov, 89'
