    Match Report by Norman Giller

Alex Stepney played his only game in the England goal one week before helping Manchester United win the European Cup on the same pitch. Colin Bell also made his first appearance, and helped inspire goals from Peters, Hunt and a classic from Charlton, who became the new record holder with forty-five goals before limping off to be replaced by Geoff Hurst. Charlton recovered from his injury to lead United to their emotional European Cup victory over Benfica. There was a worrying climax to the game when Swedish goalkeeper Larsson was carried off with a fractured skull after he had bravely dived at the feet of Alan Mullery.
