  • Assist: Peter Beardsley. "Lineker took the goal he did score, in the 59th minute, with familiar aplomb after Robson had released Beardsley behind the defence for a run and a cross but as the England manager remarked later 'with his reputation he should have had two more.'" Gary Lineker26th of 48 goals. Right-footed from 10 yards., 59' 58:54

Notes

  • Lineker GoalBarry Davis on commentary is convinced that Beardsley is offside when Robson plays the ball out of his own half. Not only is Beardsley clearly onside, so is Lineker who is two yards ahead of him, both being played on by Schällibaum. On revewing the replay Davis changes his mind. [I'm only adding this here because nothing else happened in this very boring match!]
