    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

The first victory under the Ramsey baton, and what an impressive scalp.  Czechoslovakia had been runners-up in the 1962 World Cup final and included European footballer of the year Josef Masopust in their midfield. Greaves (2), Smith and Charlton scored the goals, and Ken Shellito and Terry Paine made impressive debuts. A knee injury would virtually end Shellito's career within the year. He was a beautifully balanced player who could match the speed of sprinting wingers. His early retirement would be a blow for Chelsea and England, but George Cohen was - so to speak - waiting in the wings to make the No 2 jersey his personal property. Bobby Moore captained England for the first time in place of the injured Armfield. He would go on to skipper England 90 times, equaling the record set by one of his boyhood heroes Billy Wright (who had been his manager at England Under-23 level).
