  • Description

    THE FIRST OF A SERIES OF "TEACH-INS" FOR ENGLAND'S WORLD CUP SOCCER PLAYERS GOT UNDERWAY ON MONDAY IN LONDON BUT WITHOUT FOUR OF THE BIGGEST STARS.

    EVERTON STARS BRIAN LABONE, AND COLIN HARVEY AND MANCHESTER UNITED MEN NOBBY STYLES AND ALEX STEPNEY ALL FAILED TO APPEAR IN LONDON BECAUSE OF INJURIES. THEY ALL STAYED AT THEIR CLUBS FOR TREATMENT.

    SO INSPITE OF THE APPEAL BY SIR ALF RAMSEY, ENGLAND'S CHIEF, THAT ALL PLAYERS INCLUDING THOSE INJURED TURN UP FOR HIS FIRST SESSION, HE ONCE AGAIN FAILED TO GET 100 PER CENT BACKING.

    IN THE FOUR GAMES THAT HAVE BEEN PLAYED THIS SEASON AS PART OF ENGLAND'S WORLD CUP PREPARATIONS, SIR ALF HAS HAD TO NAME 52 MEN OWING TO INJURIES AND CLUB COMMITMENTS.

    ENGLAND MEET PORTUGAL ON WEDNESDAY AT WEMBLEY.

    MOST MEMBERS OF THE ENGLAND TEAM WILL UNDERGO EXTENSIVE MEDICAL TESTS IN HOSPITAL TOMORROW AS PART OF THE BUILD UP TO THE WORLD CUP MEXICO NEXT MAY. THEY WILL HAVE BLOOD AND DENTAL TESTS TO PREPARE FOR THE ALTITUDE PROBLEMS THEY WILL FACE IN MEXICO.

    THE RESULTS OF THESE EXAMINATIONS WILL BE STUDIED BY TEAM OFFICIALS AND WILL BE ONE OF THE GOVERNING FACTORS WHEN IT COMES IN TIME TO DRAW UP THE FINAL LIST OF PLAYERS WHO WILL BATTLE TO RETAIN THEY TROPHY.
