    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England could and should have been three goals clear at half-time if they had taken their chances. Brazil were equally careless in front of goal in the second-half, during which acting manager Les Cocker sent on substitutes Ray Kennedy and Mike Channon to put new life into a tiring team. A sequence of saves by Ray Clemence and three off-the-line clearances by Trevor Cherry stopped the Brazilians from snatching victory. What nobody knew is that Don Revie was absent because, disguised in Arab dress, he had gone to the Middle East to be interviewed for the job of supreme of football in the United Arab Emirates.
