    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England's unbeaten record against the Germans, which had lasted twelve matches and sixty-seven years, ended when Brian Labone deflected a Franz Beckenbauer shot wide of Gordon Banks eight minutes from the end. It was a goal that silenced the jeers of the German spectators who had been barracking their own team as England made and missed a string of chances. This was only England's third defeat in their last forty matches, and they headed for their European Nations Cup semi-final against Yugoslavia in Florence in good spirit.
