    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Portugal were down to ten men when centre-forward Jose Torres was sent off for attempting to hit the referee shortly after Roger Hunt had equalized a goal by Peres. Jimmy Greaves and Johnny Byrne hit the woodwork, and Byrne had a goal  disallowed but England failed to take advantage of having an extra man. Had Torres landed with his attempted punch he could have faced a life ban from football. The trouble erupted after the referee disallowed a quite obviously off-side goal by Coluna. Portuguese players hounded the referee for a full five minutes, with Torres punished for being the ring leader. England had what looked a winner from Johnny Byrne turned down five minutes from the end  and a bad-tempered match ended with a 1-1 scoreline that was a fair reflection of the play that was too often polluted by the threat of violence.
