    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

...When the game was replayed, the Czechs trailed 1-0 to a Mike Channon goal after twenty six minutes, but the clever Masny laid on an equaliser a minute before half-time and then a winner in the opening minute of the second-half. England were unsettled by the no-holds-barred physical approach of the Czechs, and started to retaliate with reckless tackles of their own in a game that was often brutal. The only player ordered off by a lenient referee was the Czech reserve goalkeeper, who was sent to the dressing-room for disputing a decision from the substitute's bench. It was the general view that at least two Czech players should have followed their team-mate for an early bath because of tackles that were out of the chamber of horrors.
