    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

The scoreline flattered England. Goalkeeper Gordon Banks was under long periods of pressure after Eric McMordie had cancelled out an early Martin Peters goal. With Newton doing an excellent containing job on George Best, England began to gain command. Goals from Francis Lee and Geoff Hurst wrapped up the game for them but not before Banks had made two splendid saves against the always dangerous Derek Dougan. Live television cut the attendance to 23,000.
