  • "England's first goal, scored in less than three minutes...Hadzibegic, probably wanting to give his goalkeeper and early feel of the ball, back-headed it towards Ravnic and took the sweeper, Elsner, by surprise. Elsner dithered, waiting for Ravnic to leave his line to cllect the ball, and the hesitation gave Beardsley the chance to nip in and slip it over the line." Peter Beardsley4th of 9 goals. Right-footed from 12 yards., 3'
  • Assist: Bryan Robson. "In the 16th minute, Beardsley spotted Ravnic slipping the ball to one of his defenders and gathering it again before it had left the area. His appeal brought England an indirect free-kick; Robson touched the ball to Barnes and his left-footed shot was placed neatly inside the right-hand post." John Barnes6th of 11 goals. Left-footed from 14 yards., 17'
  • Assist: Neil Webb. "Four minutes later Steven's corner was half cleared and, after Webb had headed the ball back into the goalmouth, Robson controlled it, turned and shot in one slick movement." Bryan Robson21st of 26 goals. Left-footed from 11 yards., 20'
  • Assist: John Barnes. "England's fourth followed at roughly the ame interval, Adams meeting Barnes's corner with an imperious downward header inside the near post..." Tony Adams1st of 5 goals. Header from 5 yards., 24' 23:55
