    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Allan Clarke volunteered for penalty duty in his first England international appearance, and showed an ice-cool temperament as he slotted home a disputed forty-eighth minute spot-kick that clinched a place in the World Cup quarter-finals. The only time the Czechs looked like scoring was when a speculative shot from twenty-five yards by right-back Dobias swerved in the thin air. Banks, at full stretch, managed to tip it on to the bar and as as he turned the ball rebounded into his arms. It was a stuttering performance by England,  but they had managed to reach the quarter-finals where, waiting for them, were of all teams West Germany. Sir Alf Ramsey's poor PR performance - he was sullen and cold when approached by the world's media - worked against England, and it seemed all neutrals wanted to see the Germans gain revenge for their defeat in the final at Wembley in 1966.
