    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Goalkeeper Ron Springett was recalled for his first game since his nightmare match in France in Ramsey's first game as England manager. He played impressively enough in a goalless game to book a place in the 1966 World Cup squad as an understudy to his successor Gordon Banks. Fielding six players from outside the First Division, Wales managed to prevent England from scoring for the first time in thirty-three years. They had the most productive player on the pitch in balding, 35-year-old Ivor Allchurch, an artist of a player who always managed to put the correct weight to his passes even now that he was into the autumn of his career and playing with Swansea in the Third Division.
