    Match Report by Norman Giller

Martin Peters headed England into the lead before Alan Ball gifted Scotland an equaliser with a suicidal back pass into the path of Hugh Curran. Ball made amends with a storming performance in midfield, and two Martin Chivers goals gave England victory and the home international championship. The defeat was a massive disappointment for Scotland central defender Frank McLintock,  who at the same Wembley Stadium two weeks earlier had collected the FA Cup as captain on the day that Arsenal completed the double.
