    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England avenged the defeat in Vienna of the previous year thanks mainly to the midfield domination of Johnny Haynes, who kept picking holes in the massed Austrian defence with low, angled passes. Five goal chances fell to the feet of Liverpool striker Roger Hunt, who was making his debut along with Sunderland's rugged Stan Anderson. Hunt was able to score from only one of the opportunities, and the London press started the Greaves v. Hunt debate that was to last throughout their careers. It is worth pointing out here that Jimmy and Roger have nothing but the highest respect for each other and that the 'bitter rivalry' between them was manufactured by the media.

Source Notes

"England's training session yesterday in preparation for the match against Austria at Wembley to-morrow was cancelled. Arsenal were to have provided the opposition for a full-scale practice at the White City, but with several knocks in hard matches on Saturday it was decided to give the party a free day." - Tuesday, 3 April 1962, Glasgow Herald.
