    Match Report by Norman Giller

Sir Alf Ramsey's final match as manager. Because of FA Cup commitments and withdrawals, he gave first caps to Phil Parkes, Mike Pejic, Martin Dobson, Dave Watson, Stan Bowles and Trevor Brooking. There was a lot of promising football played up to the penalty area, but the finishing continually let England down.  Ramsey was sacked three weeks later. He had put his indelible stamp on the international game, and his record will be a lasting testimony to the fact that he was an exceptional manager:

Played 113 Won 69 Drawn 27 Lost 17 For 224 Against 98.  It was the end of an unforgettable era for English football.
