    Match Report by Norman Giller

Just four days after the disappointment of defeat in Poland, England showed their character with a victory made harder by the stifling, humid conditions in the Lenin Stadium. Chivers powered England into the lead in the ninth minute, and ten minutes after half-time a clever dummy by Martin Peters so confused Russian defender Khurtislava that he turned the ball into his own net. The Russians pulled back a goal in the sixty-sixth minute from the penalty spot. Tony Currie was an impressive deputy for Alan Ball. Bobby Moore, equaling Bobby Charlton's record of 106 England caps, was back to his imperious best following a below-par  performance in Poland.
