France midfielder Michel Platini opened the scoring in the 57th minute with his ninth goal of the tournament, a low free-kick which spilled through the hands of the diving Spanish keeper Luis Arconada and over the goal line. Bruno Bellone doubled France's lead in the final minute with a left footed clip over the advancing goalkeeper to give them a 2–0 victory. Bellone's goal was the only one of France's fourteen goals to be scored by a striker.
