    Match Report by Norman Giller

England literally went up into the clouds for this final warm-up match before the start of their World Cup defence. Quito is more than 9,000 feet above sea level, and the ball swerved around like a boomerang. Francis Lee gave England the lead and was then substituted in the seventieth minute by Brian Kidd, who scored a second goal. Ironically, Kidd had been told he was one of six players not included in the final World Cup squad of twenty-two. It was during a stop-over in Bogota on the flight back to Mexico that Bobby Moore was arrested on a trumped-up jewel-theft charge following an allegation that he had stolen a bracelet from a hotel shop. He was held under house arrest for five days before the British ambassador negotiated his release. It would be another two years before his name was finally cleared. Nobody who knew Bobby ever doubted his innocence.
