  • Assist: Terry Butcher. "..they took the lead in the 19th minute with a goal which owed nothing to pressure and everything to the opportunism of the England captain. Butcher nodded Mabutt's long throw-in from the right on towards the far post and Robson thrust himself through the defence to head his first goal for England in 13 months." Bryan Robson19th of 26 goals. Header from 6 yards., 19'
  • Assist: Peter Beardsley. "In the 43rd minute Beardsley found Waddle in space on the right and the Tottenham player re-emphasised his present scoring form when he cut sharply into the penalty area before curling a shot past a clutch of defenders and the unsighted Dunlop low into the net." Chris Waddle4th of 6 goals. Left-footed from 17 yards., 43'
