    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Mick Mills, Frank Lampard (senior, of course), Jeff Blockley and Mike Channon made their international debuts as Sir Alf Ramsey juggled his squad because of club calls and injuries. The quartet of newcomers looked set for a winning start when Joe Royle scored his first goal for England in the fortieth minute, but Yugoslav centre-forward Franjo Vladic snatched an equaliser five minutes after half-time and Peter Shilton had to be at his best as skilful winger Dragan Djazic started to pull the uncertain England defence apart. The Yugoslavs missed three clear-cut chances in the closing stages. Tough luck on Mick Mills that he had to make his international bow against the famed and feared Djazic, one of the greatest players ever produced by Yugoslavia. It was a baptism of fire, and Mills had to wait four years for his next cap.
