    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Walter Winterbottom was working out his notice, Johnny Haynes was recovering from injuries received in a car smash and Bobby Charlton was still not fit after a hernia operation. Mike Hellawell, Chris Crowe, Ray Chamley and Alan Hinton were brought together in an experimental forward line that never looked like clicking in this European championship qualifying match. A Ron Flowers penalty saved England from defeat against a French team skippered by the old fox Raymond Kopa. Maurice Norman was booed every time he touched the ball on the home ground of Peter Swan, the man he had replaced at centre-half.
