    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Don Revie's last match was notable in that it marked the completion of England's first ever undefeated tour of South America, but the game itself was best forgotten. Uruguay showed interest only in defending their goal, and England's tired players could not work up the energy to find a way through. They finished the tour with only one goal to show for all their effort in three matches. Then came the bombshell news that Revie was deserting to the Arabs. He had been manager for twenty-nine matches, of which fourteen were won, eight drawn and seven lost. Enter Ron Greenwood. It was like a vicar taking over from a second-hand car salesman.
