    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Francis Lee, noted as one of the deadliest of all penalty takers, missed his second spot-kick in an England jersey. England were awarded the penalty after Jeff Astle had been brought down.  Lee stumbled as he ran up to take the kick and sliced the ball so wide it nearly hit a corner flag. It took centre-half Jack Charlton to show the forwards how to get the ball into the net on a pitch made treacherous by heavy rain. Jack rose high to head in a corner from brother Bobby in the twenty-fourth minute of an undistinguished match. Martin Peters was summoned on as second-half substitute for Colin Bell, who went off with a dislocated shoulder.
