    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Goalkeeper Gordon West played impressively as deputy for Gordon Banks, and then astonished Ramsey by asking not to be considered for any more internationals because he suffered so much from homesickness. The England team struggled in the second-half as the Mexico's high altitude took its toll, and Ramsey noted that he would need to give them several weeks to acclimatise before the 1970 World Cup finals. An unofficial international followed three days later in which an FA XI won 4-0 as Sir Alf gave every player in his squad experience of action in the thin air of Mexico.
