England Starting Formation

    4-4-1-1

Notes

  • Missed Penalty: Gary Lineker1st miss from 5th taken (80.0%). England's 73rd overall. 11th minute. "...after only 10 minutes and early pass from Stevens sent Lineker sprinting clear of a square defence and Carlos charged off his line to give away a penalty with a short jab to England captain's head [9:06]. Lineker prepared to mark his final appearance at Wembley with an historic goal but after waiting for Carlos to dive tried to chip the ball over the goalkeeper and merely succeeded in hitting his legs [10:12]. Had he scored he would have equalled Bobby Charlton's England scoring record.
