    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Master poacher Jimmy Greaves scored a first-half hat-trick as England rushed to a 4-0 half-time lead, but the second-half belonged to George Best and Ireland. The young Manchester United winger tied the defenders into knots, and inspired the Irish into a fight back that had England hanging on to a one goal lead at the final whistle. Alf Ramsey gave his team a rocket after the match for becoming complacent. If it had not been for a string of superb saves by Banks, Northern Ireland's second half revival movement would have been rewarded with a remarkable victory. 'If we struggle to hold on to a 4-0 lead,' Ramsey said afterwards, 'what's going to happen if we go a goal down? We must start being more disciplined.'
