    Match Report by Norman Giller

Chelsea winger Peter Brabrook came in for his debut along with Wolves inside-forward Peter Broadbent, but Bobby Charlton was left kicking his heels on the touchline. Brabrook almost became an instant hero with a shot that struck the Russian post and then bounced into Yashin's hands. In the second-half he had a goal disallowed before the Russians scored the winning goal when Ilyin's shot went in off a post to put England out of the World Cup. When England arrived back in London, Walter Winterbottom was met at the airport by his young son, Alan, who asked the question on the lips of thousands of football fans: "Daddy, why didn't you play Bobby Charlton?"
