    Match Report by Norman Giller

Bobby Moore set a new appearances record in his 107th match for England, but he was unable to celebrate a victory. Anastasi gave Italy the lead in the thirty-seventh minute, and Capello made it 2-0 seven minutes after half-time as the England defenders stood waiting for an off-side whistle that never came. It was Italy's first victory against England in nine encounters spread over forty years.
