    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Alf Ramsey's international playing career had ended the last time the Hungarians visited Wembley for their famous 6-3 victory in 1953. His long-awaited revenge was given to him by a well-constructed Jimmy Greaves goal in the sixteenth minute. Bobby Charlton failed a late fitness test and John Connelly was recalled for the first time since Ramsey's desperate first match against France. England's attacking moves were often disjointed and lacking imagination, but the most heartening sight for Ramsey was seeing the defence comfortably cope with a Hungarian forward line that was not a patch on their predecessors of 1953. Skipper Bobby Moore was exceptional at the heart of the defence.
