    Background: LONDON, U.K./DUSSELDORF, WEST GERMANY/COPENHAGEN, DENMARK

    A late goal from team captain Bryan Robson gave England a 1-0 win over East Germany at Wembley stadium on September 12. It appeared that the friendly soccer game would end in a goalless draw when Robson scored from close-range in the 83rd minute. England dominated the first half of the game but were up against the formidable East German goalkeeper Rene Muller. Veteran East German striker Joachim Streich drove a hard shot against the post in the 19th minute and the East Germans came close in the second half when substitute Hans Richter volleyed over the bar when well placed.

    In Dusseldorf, two first-half goals from Jose Daniel Ponce led Argentina to a 3-1 victory over West Germany in a friendly soccer match between the two former world champions on September 12. It was Argentina's third win in as many matches on its European tour. Ponce got Argentina off to a good start scoring with a brilliant free-kick goal after four minutes and the South American team dominated the match throughout. Ponce scored again in the 36th minute and Burruchaga made it 3-0 after 58 minutes. West Germany's Ditmar Jakobs headed in his team's only goal in the 78th minute. The match was a disastrous debut for West Germany's new manager Franz Beckenbauer, who took over the team in June.

    In Copenhagen, Denmark cruised to an easy 3-1 victory over Austria in a friendly international. It was Denmark's first game since their defeat by Spain in the semi-finals of the European Championships finals in France in June. Michael Laudrup put Denmark ahead in the first half but a lucky rebound enabled Martin Gissinger to equalise just before half-time. Denmark continued to dominate the second half and got goals from Flemming Christensen and Henrik Eigenbrod. It was Denmark's first win against Austria in four matches played since the Second World War.
