    Match Report by Norman Giller

Derek Temple, Everton's flying winger, was called into England's injury-weakened side for what was his only cap. It was his surging run and cross that laid on the winning goal for Terry Paine in the thirty-seventh minute. Alf Ramsey experimented with a variation of a 4-3-3 formation, with Mick Jones leading the attack for the first time. This was the tenth meeting between the Germans and England and Germany were still seeking their first victory. A bit of old Fleet Street comment here in a way of explanation. There was a small group of football writers on the national newspapers (Brian Glanville, Geoffrey Green, David Miller, Clive Toye, Ken Jones and Brian James chief among them) who battled with their sports editors to get teams laid out in the newspapers in the new style of play. For instance, this team should read: Banks; Cohen Charlton, Moore, Wilson; Ball, Eastham Flowers; Paine, Jones, Temple. But the old school sports editors would not stand for it. 'Our readers will not accept the player in the number three jersey coming fifth in the line-up,' they would argue. So right up until recent times the player in the number three jersey would appear third in the line-up, even though there would be a back four of a right back, two central defenders and a left-back; and the number four or six player would invariably play in midfield. So most newspapers and their readers were stuck in the sand of the old days of 2-3-5, and it was a very slow process before fans were educated in the understanding of the new systems. Not Fleet Street's finest hour.
