He moved pretty fucking well from his own half for that second goal for a fat boy.
Also, we were largely gash in the group stages of 86.
Just about made it out of the group.
Lost to Portugal, drew with Morocco then suddenly woke up versus the Poles.
Steve Hodge's cross for Lineker's second against Poland was superb though.
England's story in almost all World Cups is as soon as we come up against what you'd call a "top" side, we lose.
The only top side I can remember us beating is the Argies in 2002 in the group.
I remember that bloody game. Because of dodgy kick off times our local pub decided they would open early to show it. Being a naive and innocent soul I assumed no one would drink alcohol at such an ungodly hour and decided to watch the game in the pub and partake of one of hearty breakfast options that were going to be offered.
Imagine my shock, horror and dismay when I entered the premises and realised beer was flowing freely and the woman who was supposed to be cooking the aforementioned hearty breakfasts had phoned in sick and the only nourishment available was manufactured by Golden Wonder. The filled rolls that had been knocked up as a substitute to the Cholesterol Special I had been looking forward to had long since been consumed by the greedy bastards who were there before me.
But I manfully decided against flouncing off with the raging hump and instead decided to embark upon what is still to this day the earliest piss up I have ever been involved with. I guess there were probably a record number of sickies thrown that day as well.
The other thing I remember about that tournament is how desperate the organisers were to see South Korea reach the final. The number of dodgy decisions that lot got was amazing.
People who claim to be modest usually have a lot to be modest about.
