    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

This was Sir Alf Ramsey's fiftieth match since he took over and his thirty-third victory. It was also a milestone match for Harold Shepherdson, who was on the touchline for his hundredth match as England trainer. A neatly worked goal by Alan Ball in the twentieth minute won the match. The England squad then went off on a trip to Canada thinly disguised as an FA XI as part of the Expo 67 festivities. The nadir of a pointless exercise was Sir Alf getting caught up in a heated argument over the state of the pitch in Montreal which had been used for a circus parade a day before the game. In one of the great unexpected and original quotes from a football manager, Sir Alf fumed in his clipped tones: 'I will not allow my players to risk injury on a disgraceful pitch that is covered in elephant shit.'
