  • "In the 14th minute Cowans began a move on the left and Hateley exchanged passes with Sansom, before producing a shot that El-Batal could only block. The Egyptian defence had ample opportunity to clear the ball as it rebounded towards the edge of the area, but nobody was around to stop Steven driving a shot past the unsighted goalkeeper." Trevor Steven3rd of 4 goals, 14'
  • "But until they scored a second goal in the 43rd minute, their lead was looking tenuous. The goal came from an elementary blunder from Omar, who intercepted a through pass from Wilkins and immediately turned it back to his goalkeeper only to find that El-Batal had already left his line and was practically on top if him. The ball rolled back into the empty net." Mohamed Omar, 43' (og)
  • Assist: Trevor Steven. "Wilkins...instigated England's third goal after 52 minutes. His well-flighted pass sent Steven on the right and from the centre Wallace, unmarked at the far post, scored with a firm volley." Danny WallaceOnly Goal, 52'
  • Assist: Peter Beardsley. "With nine minutes to go...Cowans turned on the ball some 20 yards out and celebrated his return with England's fourth goal." Gordon Cowans2nd of 2 goals, 81'
