    Match Report by Norman Giller

Martin Peters scored his first goal for England and the first of the match at the start of a final warm-up tour before the World Cup finals. Alan Ball failed from the penalty spot in a game remembered more for the many missed chances than those that were eventually taken by Roger Hunt and Jack Charlton (a freak goal from a last-minute shot from out on the by-line. Ian Callaghan made a lively debut alongside his Liverpool team-mate Hunt as Alf Ramsey continued his experiment of playing with just one winger. Soon, there would be none!
