    Match Report by Norman Giller

Alf Ramsey's first match - a European championship qualifier - was a personal nightmare for goalkeeper Ron Springett. He was responsible for three of the French goals, his most costly error coming after England had pulled back from 3-0 to 3-2 with goals from Bobby Tambling and the recalled Bobby Smith. Springett, a man of character and charm, did not try to make any excuses, but Ramsey pointed out that he had been kicked in the ribs when conceding the first goal. He was also troubled by the floodlights in the Parc des Princes stadium. Ron Henry, Tottenham's skilful left-back, had an uncomfortable night against flying French winger Wisnieski in his one and only England appearance. Interestingly, just two of the team - Bobby Moore and Bobby Charlton - would survive to play a part in the 1966 World Cup final. Ron Springett was second string goalkeeper in the '66 squad, and was later involved in a unique swap deal with his goalkeeping brother Peter .... Ron going to Sheffield Wednesday, with Peter going in exchange to QPR.
