    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England celebrated the 100th international match played at Wembley by handing West Germany their first defeat since the 1974 World Cup triumph. New skipper Alan Ball inspired magnificent performances from his midfield partners Colin Bell and, in particular, Alan Hudson. They paralysed the German defence with their pin-pointed passing on a rain-soaked pitched, and it was Bell who gave England a twenty-fifth minute lead with a deflected shot following a Hudson free-kick. Macdonald, whose pace was always a problem for an experimental German team, scored his first goal for England in the sixty-sixth minute when he raced to the far post to head in a cross from Bell. Steve Whitworth and Ian Gillard made sound debuts as new full-back partners.
