    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England held Argentina for an hour until Rojas scored in a breakaway raid seconds after the usually so reliable Greaves had missed a clear chance at the opposite end of the pitch. The Argentineans, with skipper Antonio Rattin in commanding form, then played strolling possession football to frustrate England and to clinch victory in the 'Little World Cup' tournament. Argentina won the tournament with three wins from three matches, including victory over Brazil in a vicious game that was war masquerading as sport. England returned home convinced that Argentina would be the biggest mountain between them and the 1966 World Cup. They were particularly impressed by Rattin, who butter-smooth player who bossed the midfield with style and panache.  He had a moment of madness when he disputed a decision by the referee. A hint of things to come!
