    Match Report by Norman Giller

Allan Clarke saved England from defeat with a last-minute equaliser after collecting the ball from his Leeds team-mate Paul Madeley. The Czechs led from the fifty-sixth minute when Novak steered the ball into the net off a post. England, unfamiliar in yellow jerseys and royal-blue shorts and with Peter Storey playing out of position at left-back, lacked cohesion. Their punchless performance did little to please Sir Alf Ramsey as they made final preparations for the World Cup qualifier in Chorzow. 'We must,' said a tight-lipped Ramsey, 'make considerable improvement against Poland.' He knew that he was living under the shadow of the axe.
