    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

This was the sixteenth match since the summer of 1965 in which England had not conceded a goal. The Czechs came only to defend, and their nine-man blanket defence smothered the England attack. England were now unbeaten in their last eighteen matches, and losing only once in their last twenty-nine, but this was a below-par performance that disappointed the 75,000 crowd. For the record, this was only the second goalless draw in fifty-eight post-war full internationals at Wembley. The only other one was the World Cup curtain-raiser against Uruguay.
