    Match Report by Norman Giller

England's run of eight matches without defeat (W7 Dl LO F44 A11) ended in the Prater Stadium. The Austrians played a clever retreating defensive game and concentrated on hitting England with quick counter-attacks. Jimmy Greaves equalized their early goal, but the England defence - in which Burnley team-mates John Angus and Brian Miller were winning their only caps - lacked its usual understanding and they conceded two late goals against an innovative Austrian attack. The demand of playing three games in seven days proved too much for an England team that wilted after matching the Austrians for the first hour.
