    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England were twice in front through Bobby Charlton and John Connelly, but slack defensive play let the Austrians in for two late goals. It was to be England's last defeat before the World Cup, and ended an unbeaten run of nine games. The Austrians, the third overseas team to win at Wembley, were flattered by their victory, and the result did not dent Alf Ramsey's confidence that England were going to win the World Cup. Jimmy Greaves, of all people, missed a hat-trick of simple chances, and seemed strangely listless. He was later diagnosed as suffering from hepatitis and was out of the game for the next five months.
