    Match Report by Mike Payne


    Match Report by Norman Giller

Alf Ramsey preferred Tony Waiters to Gordon Banks in goal for this 'Little World Cup' tournament match against the world champions. Greaves equalized a first-half goal that Pele created for Rinaldo, and then midway through the second-half Pele took over and pulverized England with a purple patch that produced three goals in five minutes. Twice he earned free-kicks just outside the penalty area while dancing through the England defence juggling the ball like a circus performer.  Waiters was completely deceived by swerving free-kicks from Rinaldo and Julinho, and then Pele contributed a magical goal of his own, pushing the ball through the legs of first Bobby Moore and then Maurice Norman before sending a long-range shot screaming into the net. Diaz scored goal number five after Pele had again confused the England defence two minutes from the end. Jimmy Greaves summed up the feelings of the England players when he said: 'Pele is on another bloody planet.'
