    Match Report by Norman Giller

Jinking Jimmy Greaves scored the first of his two goals in the second minute and Wales were never allowed to recover from this jolting start. The five-goal haul took England's total to twenty-three in four matches. Injury to Ron Springett forced Walter Winterbottom's first team change for four matches, and the recalled Alan Hodgkinson gave a sound display at the back of an England defence that was rarely under pressure. England were comfortable with their 4-2-4 formation, which worked so well because of the midfield understanding of Johnny Haynes and Bobby Robson.
