    Background: England's World Cup encounter with West Germany in Madrid's Bernabeu stadium on June 29 disappointed hopes of an exciting display of football and resulted in a non-eventful 0-0 draw. Both the English and the West German sides were playing cautiously in the knowledge that any slip up would mean probable elimination. England, in the red shirts and white shorts, came close to scoring in the first half when Paul Mariner flicked the ball to Bryan Robson from a Kenny Sansom cross, but the Robson header was punched over the bar by the German goalkeeper. The deadlock was again nearly broken in the second half when West Germany's Rummenigge hit the crossbar five minutes before time. The result means both team's chances of staying in the cup depend on the outcome of matches to be played with the host team, Spain. Argentina's opening second round match against Italy in Barcelona's Sarria stadium was a more eventful match. Italy, playing in blue shirts and white shorts, scored a 2-1 victory Argentina, leaving that country a much reduced chance of reaching the semi-finals. The first Italian goal was scored in the 56th minute when Marco Tardelli race in from the left to sweep the ball wide of goalkeeper Ubaldo Fillol. Twelve minutes later Bruno Conti collected a rebound off Fillol's leg and cut a pass back for Antonio Cabrini who thrashed the ball high into the net giving Italy 2-0 lead. Argentina's one goal came six minutes from time when captain Daniel Passarella scored from a 22-metre free kick. The victory was Italy's first in this World Cup tournament, ironically they were also the only team to beat the Argentine champions for years ago.
