    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Johnny Byrne completed a memorable hat-trick in the final moments with a beautifully disguised chip shot from the edge of the penalty area that went over the heads of three defenders and the goalkeeper and into the net. Portugal, who had led twice through the towering Torres – a 6ft 7in centre-forward – and his Benfica side-kick Eusebio, could not believe it.  Liverpool dribbler Peter Thompson won his first of sixteen caps as he tried to prove to Ramsey that wingers were a necessary evil. The match was staged to mark the golden anniversary of the Portuguese Football Association, and it was 17 years after England's 10-0 victory in the same picturesque setting of Portugal's National Stadium.
