    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

George Cohen came in at right-back for the injured Jimmy Armfield, and partnered Ray Wilson for the first time. Ramsey's 1966 World Cup defence was taking shape. Johnny Byrne scored both England goals in an uninspiring match. A week earlier the Uruguayans had been involved in a brawl of a match with Northern Ireland in Belfast, and Alf Ramsey warned his players that on no account should they be drawn into any feuds. The result was a tame game decided by the decisive finishing of Byrne, nicknamed 'Budgie' because he was a non-stop talker both on and off the pitch. 'They were the two most satisfying goals I have ever scored,' said chirpy Byrne, who was a beautifully balanced player who used skill rather than strength to bamboozle defences.
