England made their first appearance in a match played against Australia at the Sydney Football Stadium, which was not yet built during their last visit, on 1 June 1993. During England's last tour of Australia in 1983, players such as goalkeeper Peter Shilton, Terry Butcher, Trevor Francis and John Barnes arrived Down Under.
Frank Arok had been appointed coach of the Socceroos, as it was time for change. Under these circumstances it was most meritorious for the rebuilding of Australian soccer that the Socceroos drew 0-0 with England in Sydney, lost 1-0 in Brisbane and drew 1-1 in Melbourne.
The touring party in 1991, captained by Gary Lineker, had a combination of experienced internationals and promising young players to take on the Socceroos. Players like Dennis Wise of Chelsea, Nigel Clough of Nottingham Forest and Geoff Thomas of Crystal Palace.
England defeated Australia 1-0. An own-goal from a set-piece separated the sides. Paul Parker played the ball down the right wing to Lineker, who was fouled by Socceroos defender, Mehmet Durakovic. Stuart Pearce's in-swinging free-kick was missed by goalkeeper Robert Zabica and found the unsuspecting Ian Gray, who headed it into his own net.
