    Match Report by Norman Giller

Bryan Douglas, having switched from the wing to the role of inside forward between Burnley team-mates John Connelly and Ray Pointer, scored the 44th minute goal that gave England a draw in what Welsh idol John Charles described as "the toughest international match in which I've played." England's walking wounded at the end included Pointer (concussion), Flowers (gashed face) and Armfield (pulled muscle). Wales took a 30th minute lead with a strange goal. Centre-half Peter Swan tangled with Cardiff City centre-forward David Ward, and as he challenged for the ball his boot came off. In the confusion that followed Graham Williams steered the loose ball into the England net to send the 62,000 Ninian Park crowd into ecstasy. There was more muscle than method in a goalless second-half in which England produced little quality play to boost confidence before their upcoming crucial World Cup qualifier against Portugal.
