Italy 1990 - Third Place Playoff - Italy 2 - 1 England
- Published on Feb 25, 2011
The game saw three goals in a fifteen minute spell. Roberto Baggio opened the scoring after a rare mistake by England's goalkeeper Peter Shilton, in his final game before international retirement, presented a simple opportunity. A header by David Platt levelled the game 10 minutes later but Schillaci was fouled in the penalty area five minutes later, leading to a penalty. Schillaci himself got up to convert the kick to win him the tournament's Golden Shoe for his six goal tally and give the hosts third place. England had the consolation prize of the Fair Play award, having received no red cards and the lowest average number of yellows per match.
