    Match Report by Mike Payne


    Match Report by Norman Giller

Goals from Jack Charlton and George Eastham gave England their sixth successive victory. Chelsea goalkeeper Peter Bonetti had his first taste of international football and performed well on a bumpy pitch that led to many errors in front of him. The amateurs of Denmark, playing for their pride, were robust with their challenges. This brought out the vicious competitive edge that lurked just below the surface with Nobby Stiles and Alan Ball, and they were both given lectures by a Canadian referee who in this day and age would have been flourishing several red cards. Greavsie, four-goal hero in the previous match, hardly got a touch of the ball in his milestone fiftieth international game.
