After watching the England – Cameroon game, I was reminded of just how poor England were and how much they underestimated the African team, who were the better team on the day. But also how good then was Gazza as a very young player. Mark Wright, even when reduced to one good eye. Lineker, whose presence on MoTD has become anything from overbearing to laughable at times, was non-stop, covered every blade of grass. Shilton, in the autumn of his England career, so composed and making saves that saved England. And what a bad decision to substitute John Barnes, who was ripping the left side of Cameroon’s defence to shreds.
