    Match Report by Norman Giller

The old West Ham double act of Hurst and Peters sunk the Scots with two goals each, the second of Hurst's goals coming from a thunderous penalty that many observers considered the hardest they had ever seen a ball hit from the spot. Colin Stein scored to make it 2-1 at half-time, and the final scoreline was harsh on a Scottish team powerfully driven from midfield by Billy Bremner and Archie Gemmill.  The victory put England in just the right mood for their fact-finding tour in preparation for their 1970 World Cup defence.
