    Match Report by Norman Giller

England scored three goals and had two others disallowed as they pulled the Welsh defence apart in this Home Championship match. Allan Clarke did not get his name on the scoresheet, but he was the outstanding player on the pitch as he combined neatly with Mike Channon and Martin Chivers. It was England's first victory at Wembley for two years.  Martin Peters saved the best until last, scoring with a swerving shot from twenty yards after neatly combining with Channon and Clarke to make an opening.
