Here is a classic match of Englands 1990 world cup.

England V Belgium   1-0 AET
This was one of the most exciting matches of Italia 90. Belgium were the better side for the first 25 minutes, they had few good chances howver they missed them, on the other end John Barnes had a goal disallowed and Chris Waddle broke free at goal on couple of occasions. England had a scare at the end of the first half when Enzo Schifo fired a shot which hit the post. The second half was more evenly matched and with the score 0-0 at the end of 90 minutes, the game went onto extra time. Steve Bull came closing to scoring midway through the first period of extra time however his shot narrowly went wide. In the last minute of extra time Paul Gascoigne broke free from the Belgian defence and was fouled by one of their defenders. The resulting free kich led to the goal scored by David platt. Paul Gascoigne threaded into the box a free kick which David Platt volleyed in. England won the match 1-0 after extra time and they had the exciting prospect of meeting Cameroon in the quarter finals.
