Manager Alf Ramsey also played against Wales three times between 1950 and 1952. He was the captain in 1950.
Bobby Charlton's 31st goal now makes him England's highest goalscorer, overtaking Tom Finney and Nat Lofthouse.

    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

The double act of Greaves and Smith was unstoppable. Greaves made a goal in the fifth minute for Smith who then returned the compliment before the irrepressible Greaves laid on a second goal for his beefy Tottenham team-mate. Bobby Charlton finished off the Welsh with his thirty-first goal for England, beating the record that he had held jointly with Nat Lofthouse and Tom Finney. 'Preston Plumber' Finney was a guest spectator, and said: 'Bobby will go on to score many goals for England. The record could not be held by a better player nor a nicer man. He is a credit to the game.' One true gentleman recognizing another. Bobby Charlton wore the number 11 jersey, but followed Ramsey's orders and was more withdrawn than usual ... a sign of things to come.
