Match No. 628 - Wednesday, 14th October 1987, 8:00pm

  • Assist: Neil Webb. "Webb...ended a build-up on the right with a flat centre to the far post. The marking was slack as Barnes stole in from the left and the Liverpool winger had ample time to measure his distance before beating Fatih." John Barnes4th of 11 goals. Left-footed from 6 yards., 2' 01:02
  • Assist: Kenny Sansom. "...Lineker increased England's lead in the eighth minute. This time Sansom with a nice little chip over the defender's head on the left. Lineker given far more time and space than he might expect in the Spanish League, accepted the chance almost nonchalantly." Gary Lineker21st of 48 goals. Right-footed from 12 yards., 8'
  • Assist: Peter Beardsley. "Then Beardsley ran at the defence just before the half-hour and side-stepped a couple of challenges before slipping the ball to Barnes on his right. Barnes duly scored his second." John Barnes5th of 11 goals. Right-footed from 12 yards., 28'
  • Assist: Peter Beardsley. "Two minutes before half-time Barnes, Sansom, Robson and Webb played a series of quite insolent first-time passes through the defence on the left and, although Lineker's first shot was blocked by a defender, he simply scored from the rebound." Gary Lineker22nd of 48 goals. Right-footed from 6 yards., 42'
  • Assist: Neil Webb. "After an hour, following a corner on the right, the ball came out to Webb whose 30-yard shot was deflected past Fatih by Robson." Bryan Robson20th of 26 goals. Left-footed from 8 yards., 59'
  • Assist: Glenn Hoddle. "Four minutes later Lineker's cheeky backheel gave Hoddle the chance for a first-time cross and, as Fatih came to meet it, Beardsley dived in front of him to head in England's sixth." Peter Beardsley3rd of 9 goals. Header from 8 yards., 62'
  • Assist: Bryan Robson. "After Lineker ha[d] scored England's seventh goal...[scoring] his fourth international hat-trick." Gary Lineker23rd of 48 goals. Right-footed from 20 yards., 71'
  • Assist: Glenn Hoddle. "...Neil Webb added the eighth from as cross by Glenn Hoddle..." Neil Webb1st of 4 goals. Right-footed from 9 yards., 88'
