  • Description

    WEST GERMANY EXTRACTED A MORSEL OF VENGEANCE YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) WHEN FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 16 MATCHES THEY DEFEATED ENGLAND BY OPEN GOAL TO NIL.

    HOWEVER, THERE WAS LITTLE GLORY IN THE VICTORY. THE GOAL CAME WHEN BECKENBAUER DEFLECTED THE BALL OFF ANOTHER PLAYER'S LEG AND IT SPUN INTO THE NET.

    THE MATCH WAS DULL AND SCARCELY REACHED THE CALIBRE OF A CONTEST BETWEEN TWO NOTED INTERNATIONAL SIDES. FOULS OUTNUMBERED MOMENTS OF CREATIVE FOOTBALL.

    THE ENGLISH SIDE ANGERED THE GERMAN SPECTATORS AND THE REFEREE ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS WITH HARD TACKLING.

    THE ONLY GOAL OF THE MATCH CAME EIGHT MINUTES FROM THE FINAL WHISTLE, SHATTERING ENGLAND'S RECORD OF NOT HAVING LOST ON THE CONTINENT SINCE 1963.

    HOWEVER, ENGLAND DID NOT PLAY ITS USUAL TOP SIDE, WHICH WILL MEET YUGOSLAVIA IN FLORENCE ON WEDNESDAY IN THE SEMI-FINAL OF THE EUROPEAN NATIONS CUP.
