    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Two smartly taken Roger Hunt goals gave England a confidence booster on their way into the World Cup quarter-finals. Ian Callaghan became the third winger tried by the England manager. Jimmy Greaves finished the match with a deep gash on his left shin, and Stiles was booked for a crunching tackle on French striker Simon. He was fortunate not to be sent off, and Ramsey ignored calls from Football Association officials that he should drop Stiles because of his competitive nature. 'If Stiles goes, so do I,' said Ramsey. And he was not feigning.  He knew how vital Nobby's ball-winning performances were to the team in an era when fierce tackling midfield players were a necessary evil.
