    SPAIN, WHO LOST THE FIRST LEG 1 - 0 LAST MONTH, EQUALISED ON AGGREGATE THREE MINUTES AFTER HALF TIME WITH A BRILLIANT SOLO GOAL FROM INSIDE-RIGHT AMANCIO AMARO. BUT ENGLAND HIT BACK SIX MINUTES LATER WHEN MARTIN PETERS HEADED HOME FROM A CORNER.

    TEN MINUTES FROM THE END NORMAN HUNTER...A LAST MINUTE SELECTION FOR GEOFF HURST, WHO WITHDREW A SEPTIC TOE... SCORED ENGLAND'S SECOND GOAL. ENGLAND THUS QUALIFIED 3 - 1 ON AGGREGATION TO MEET YUGOSLAVIA IN FLORENCE NEXT MONTH IN THE SEMI-FINALS.

    SPAIN, ESPECIALLY IN THE FIRST HALF, ATTACKED FOR LONG PERIODS. BUT THEY WERE UNABLE TO PIERCE A BRILLIANT ENGLISH DEFENCE IN WHICH BRIAN LABONE AND FULL-BACK KEITH NEWTON WERE OUTSTANDING.
