    Match Report by Norman Giller

When Geoff Hurst pulled out of this European championship quarter-final second leg at the last minute with a damaged toe, Sir Alf Ramsey juggled his team and summoned Norman Hunter as an extra containing player. Amancio brought the scores level on aggregate in the first minute of the second-half of a match played with a fierce determination. Martin Peters quickly restored England's advantage when he headed in an Alan Ball corner. Ten minutes from the end Roger Hunt collected an Alan Mullery throw, and his cross was thrashed into the net by, of all people, Hunter, scoring a rare goal with one of the most under-used right boots in football. The victory clinched England's place in the European championship semi-finals in Italy.
