    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Colin Bell gave England a 1-0 half-time lead and victory hopes were high when Banks saved a penalty from Brazilian skipper Carlos Alberto that briefly silenced the 160,000 crowd in the magnificent Maracana Stadium. Alan Mullery policed Pele so well that he made hardly any impact on the match, but England tired in the final twenty minutes and they were brought to their knees by late goals from Tostao and Jairzinho (a signed of things to come!). Sir Alf Ramsey said after the match: 'I am proud of every one of our players. We were so close to a deserved victory. I am delighted with our overall performances on this tour, and it will be of great benefit when we come back next year for the World Cup.'
