    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Joe Baker, deputising for the hospitalized Greaves, put England in the lead in the nineteenth minute. The Irish equalised sixty seconds later when Willie Irvine turned a George Best centre through the legs of an embarrassed Gordon Banks. Persistent rain made the surface treacherous, and the Irish defenders were slithering around when Alan Peacock scored England's winner in the seventieth minute. Under gentle persuasion from Alf Ramsey - and at club level, Matt Busby -  Bobby Charlton was starting to specialize in more of a withdrawn role, and he was developing into the Great Conductor.
