    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Sir Alf Ramsey was shaping his tactics for the coming defence of the World Cup, and had settled on a 4-4-2 formation with Francis Lee and Geoff Hurst as the two front runners supported from midfield by Alan Mullery, Alan Ball, Bobby Charlton and Martin Peters. There was press criticism of the system after England had struggled to hold Wales, Lee salvaging a draw with a spectacular solo goal after Dick Krzywicki had given the Welsh a well-deserved lead.  Sir Alf said later that he was satisfied with the performance. 'Everything we do now is with Mexico in mind,' he said. 'We must adapt the way we play for the conditions we will meet out there.'
