    Match Report by Norman Giller

Jimmy Greaves, nineteen-year-old idol of Chelsea, arrived on the international stage with a neatly taken second-half goal, drawing the goalkeeper off his line before slotting a left foot shot just inside a post. But it was the only bright moment in a miserable England performance. The Peruvians, leading 2-0 at half-time, were helped to four goals by mistakes from a strangely lethargic England defence which had no answer to the thrusting left wing runs of Seminario, who helped himself to a hat-trick.
