    Prague, Czechoslovakia.

    MS. Czechoslovakian band playing on pitch as the teams come out at start of the second round of the European Cup Winners Cup football match between West Ham and Spartak in Prague. Several shots of the two team captains exchanging flags before kick off. MS. Part of the crowd, West Ham supporters, swaying from side to side singing. Various shots of the match. West Ham loses to Spartak 2-1. Coverage shows John Sissons scoring for West Ham and Mraz scoring both goals for Spartak. Various shots of the end of game with players leaving the field. West Ham players seem happy because this is the second leg of the competition. They win both games by 3-2 aggregate.

    Date found in the old record - 13/12/1964.

    Amendment May 2012: Thanks to jamied who has left a helpful comment: Game was played on 9 December 1964. Apparently this is the Second Leg of a First Round match. "Mraz scoring both goals for Spartak" - first goal was actually from Masek after 68 mins, the second was Mraz after 88. Also seen: Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters.

    Game was played on 9 December 1964.

    "start of the second round of the European Cup Winners Cup" - actually its the Second Leg of a First Round match.

    "Mraz scoring both goals for Spartak" - first goal was actually from Masek after 68 mins, the second was Mraz after 88.

    Amongst the West Ham players seen walking off in the last few seconds of the clip are Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters.
