    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England were trailing 3-2 with 90 seconds to go when Joe Baker crashed the ball against the bar, and Johnny Haynes swept in the rebound. Straight from the kick-off an England attack ended with Baker again heading against the bar but this time there was nobody able to turn the ball back into the goal. An England victory would have been an injustice to a Yugoslavian side that played some excellent football, with two-goal Galic continually turning the defence inside out. England led 2-1 after 48 minutes following neatly taken goals either side of half-time by Bryan Douglas and Jimmy Greaves after the Yugoslavs had taken a 30th minute lead. It was a tough debut for the latest candidate for the No. 5 shirt, Peter Swan of Sheffield Wednesday. He replaced Bill Slater, who heard that he was dropped just a few minutes before being told that he had been elected 'Footballer of the Year'. Swan was stranded as Yugoslavia equalised on the hour, and a clever back heel by Galic gave Kosctic the chance to make it 3-2 with 10 minutes to go. This set up the dramatic climax to one of the most exciting international matches witnessed at Wembley.
