    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

John Hollins won his only cap for England and played a prominent part in the first goal. His centre to the far post was headed down by Alan Ball into the path of Roger Hunt, whose shot was blocked and Jimmy Greaves banged in the rebound. It was his forty-fourth and final goal for England. Hunt scored England's second goal in a match played for much of the time in a torrential downpour. Peter Bonetti, Keith Newton, Brian Labone and John Hollins were all brought into the Ramsey fold as he started to build for the 1968 European championship finals.
