    Match Report by Norman Giller

Alan Mullery made his debut in midfield alongside Terry Venables, a partnership that they would soon renew at Tottenham. They combined to create a goal for another Spurs star, Jimmy Greaves, who scored four minutes from the end to force a draw in this match to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Dutch FA. England played the game at exhibition pace as if they did not want to spoil the Dutch party. Maurice Norman, the big ox of a centre-half who had been like a man mountain in the middle of the Tottenham and England defences, broke a leg in a meaningless club friendly against Hungary and his distinguished career for club and country was over. Enter Jack Charlton.
