    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Everton centre-forward Fred Pickering started his international career with a hat-trick and Roger Hunt scored four goals as England ran riot against an overwhelmed United States team. Mike Bailey, driving captain of Charlton before his move to Wolves, had a comfortable debut and would have won many more caps but for breaking a leg a few months later. Alf Ramsey had been right-back in the England team humbled 1-0 by the United States in the 1950 World Cup finals, and it was suggested to him after the match that this runaway victory had been something of a consolation. He gave the football writer putting the question one of his infamous cold-eyed stars and said: 'Nothing will ever be a consolation for that.' Clearly, an old wound that would never go away.
