    Match Report by Norman Giller

Two rare mistakes by Gordon Banks let Switzerland in for equalisers after England had twice taken the lead through goals by Geoff Hurst and Martin Chivers in the first-half of this European championship qualifier. It was just looking as if the Swiss would escape with a draw when a Chivers cross was deflected into the net by defender Weibel for a seventy-ninth minute winner.  The victory put England top of their qualifying group.
