    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Roger Hunt, playing in place of tonsillitis-victim Greaves, scored a spectacular equalizer from thirty yards after Banks had conceded a soft goal midway through the first-half. Bobby Charlton netted the second-half winner after a series of goalmouth misses against an outpowered East German team. An England victory in Germany would have had most managers singing their own praises, but Alf Ramsey proved he was a perfectionist expecting the highest standards when he said: 'Our passing was erratic and careless and lacking in imagination. We can, and will, do much much better.' But he stored in the back of his mind that England could function - and win - without Jimmy Greaves.
