  • Description

    ENGLAND, THE WORLD SOCCER CHAMPIONS, WERE HELD TO A GOALLESS DRAW BY CZECHOSLOVAKIA TONIGHT (WEDNESDAY) AT WEMBLEY STADIUM, LONDON. IT WAS ENGLAND'S FIRST APPEARANCE AT WEMBLEY SINCE BEATING WEST GERMANY IN THE WORLD CUP FINAL IN JULY.

    ENGLAND, FIELDING THE TEAM THAT BEAT THE GERMANS, MONOPOLISED THE PALY AGAINST THE DEFENCE CONSCIOUS CZECHS, BUT FAILED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF NUMEROUS OPPORTUNITIES TO SCORE. ENGLAND'S DEFENCE WAS WATERTIGHT.

    CZECHOSLOVAKIA, WORLD CUP FINALISTS IN 1962 BUT NON-QUALIFIERS IN THIS YEAR'S COMPETITION, FIELDED AN EXPERIMENTAL SIDE AIMED AT THE 1970 WORLD CUP. GOALKEEPER IVO VIKTOR WAS THE CZECH STAR.

    THIS WAS ENGLAND'S 18TH INTERNATIONAL MATCH WITHOUT DEFEAT.
