  • The Germans are passing the ball around their back four nicely until Augenthaler dallies and allows Terry Butcher to steal the ball 40 yards out with only the keeper to beat. As he rounds Schumacher he knocks the ball right to the advancing Dixon who hits a right footed shot (8 yards out and 2 yards outside the right post) against the right post and in. Kerry Dixon1st of 4 goals, 54'
  • Assist: John Barnes. A deep cross from the left byline by Barnes finds Dixon just inside the angle of the right 6 yard box. His header loops back over flailing Schumacher, touching the bar and in. Kerry Dixon2nd of 4 goals, 67'
