Wednesday 11 June 1986 (England 3-0 Poland… ho ho ho)

Another exam today, this time Mathematics.  Fortunately, it wasn't hard and I gave myself 42/55 and 26/45 for the two parts.

In the evening kick off, England needed a win in their final group game against Poland at the Estadio Tecnológico, Monterrey.  Could they do it... well yes they could.  Gary Lineker proved what a great striker he was (crap TV pundit, mind) with a blistering 25 minute first half hat-trick which just blew the Poles away.

You must remember the chinny wonder, Jimmy Hill, sitting next to Barry Davies in the commentary box, doing his very unseasonal Father Christmas impressions.  So that was it, after a shaky start, England qualified in second place and a date at the Azteca with Paraguay on the 18 June.
