    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Colin Bell scored the goal that defeated a Dutch team that played the more skilful football but without being able to provide the finishing touch to their impressive approach work.  Emlyn Hughes made a sound start to his England career at left-back. It was Guy Fawkes Day, but there were few fireworks from an England attack that too often put passes astray. The game was into its last five minutes when Bell netted the winning goal following a mishit shot by Bobby Charlton. It was deserved reward for an all-action display from Bell, who had earlier put a header against the bar. His energetic performance showed why his Manchester City coach Malcolm Allison had nicknamed him Nijinsky (after the race horse, not the ballet master). The talk among the England players after the match was the performance of young Ajax partners Rudi Krol and Johann Cruyff. The prediction was that we would be hearing a lot more about them.
