    Match Report by Norman Giller

Roger Hunt and Johnny Byrne deputized for injured Greaves and Smith on a wet and stormy afternoon at Hampden. Alan Gilzean, who was to take over from Smith as partner to Greaves at Spurs, scored the only goal of the match after Gordon Banks had misjudged a seventy-second minute corner-kick from Davie Wilson that got held up in the near-gale force wind. A crowd of 133,245 witnessed a third Scottish victory in a row over the Auld Enemy, the first time this had happened for eighty years. Gordon Banks said of the goal:  'This was my first match at Hampden, and I had often heard stories that whenever there is a strong wind it gets locked in the Hampden bowl and plays all sorts of tricks with the ball. On this day, there was a gale of wet wind swirling around the game and it was a nightmare trying to decide whether to come off my line for crosses and centres in case the ball suddenly changed course. Davie Wilson fired a corner kick high into the six-yard box. It was a goalkeeper's ball all the way and I shouted 'mine' as I left my line to collect it. But suddenly the ball was trapped by the wind and stopped as if it had brakes on it. I was left clutching thin air as Alan Gilzean stole in front of me and nodded the ball into the net with what was his specialty flick header. As the ball went into the net I swear the Hampden Roar could have been heard way down over Hadrian's Wall.'
