    Background: LONDON, U.K./MARSEILLES, FRANCE/LISBON, PORTUGAL

    England suffered a nightmare match at Wembley on June 2, going down 2-0 to an impressive Soviet team. They were saved from a heavier defeat by goalkeeper Peter Shilton. England started well and nearly took the lead early on when Mark Chamberlain powered through the Soviet defence, only to see his shot beaten away by keeper Dasayev. England hero Peter Shilton kept out first Oganesyan and then Rodionov as the Soviet team began to take control of midfield. A long through ball led to England defender Mike Duxbury treading on the ball instead of clearing it. Gotsanov gratefully put the ball into the England net to make it 1-0. Blokhin was unlucky to hit the post before Protasev seized on another Shilton save to put the rebound home for the second Soviet goal.

    In Marseilles on June 1, France lived up to their growing reputation by outclassing Scotland 2-0. France went ahead in the 14th minute when Alain Giresse scored from 15 metres. In the 19th minute Bernard Lacombe added the second after Platini had dispossessed Scotland's Gordon Strachan. In the second half France twice hit the woodwork, most spectacularly when Platini hit the post with a fierce shot from 18 metres.

    In Lisbon on June 2, Yugoslavia warmed up for the European Championships by defeating Portugal 3-2. Portugal scored first when Carlos Manuel crossed for Jordao to put the ball into the net. Susic equalised for the Yugoslavs with a fine free kick, but Portugal went in front again in the 33rd minute with a goal remarkably similar to their first, Jordao again meeting Manuel's cross. Just before half time, Halilozic scored a free kick to equalise for Yugoslavia. In the second half the Portuguese keeper Bento brought down Stojovic, who scored from the spot to give his side victory.
