    Match Report by Norman Giller

England did well to salvage a draw from a game in which they were reduced to only nine fit players. Ray Wilson went off at half-time with torn rib muscles, and Johnny Byrne – dropping back to replace Wilson in defence – became a limping passenger with a knee injury that virtually finished his international career. Ramsey blooded Barry Bridges, Nobby Stiles and Jack Charlton (with brother Bobby on the left wing). This was the first time that England's 1966 World Cup defence paraded together. Bobby Charlton and Jimmy Greaves gave England a commanding 2-0 lead inside the first thirty-five minutes. Denis Law scored for Scotland five minutes before half-time with a viciously swerving shot, and Ian St John equalized midway through the second-half after Cohen had cleared a Davie Wilson shot off the line.  England had won the Home Championship but most neutral observers thought Alf Ramsey was being uncharacteristically overconfident when he started forecasting that England would – not might – would win the World Cup.
