  • Description

    ENGLAND GAINED THEIR FIRST INTERNATIONAL SOCCER VICTORY OVER URUGUAY WHEN THEY WON 2 - 1 AT WEMBLEY TODAY (WEDNESDAY) AVENGING DEFEATS IN TWO EARLIER ENCOUNTERS.

    ENGLAND, WHO LED 1 - 0 AT HALF-TIME, WERE NOT HARD PRESSED TO BEAT THE SOUTH AMERICAN TEAM WHICH IN THE PAST HAS WON TWO WORLD CUPS.

    URUGUAY, HOWEVER, WERE UNDER STRENGTH BECAUSE PLAYERS FROM THEIR TWO LEADING CLUBS, PENAROL AND NACIONALES, WERE NOT AVAILABLE.

    JIMMY GREAVES, RECALLED AFTER BEING DROPPED FROM THE TEAM IN ENGLAND'S LAST MATCH AGAINST SCOTLAND, HAD A HAND IN BOTH GOALS, SCORED BY JOHNNY BYRNE IN THE 42ND AND 48TH MINUTES. ALBERTO SPENCER REPLIED FOR URUGUAY AFTER 76 MINUTES.

    THE OPENING GOAL CAME WHEN ENGLAND WERE AWARDED A FREE KICK FOR HANDLING. GREAVES PASSED TO PAYNE WHO PUSHED THE BALL THROUGH FOR BYRNE TO SCORE CLOSE IN.

    ENGLAND BROUGHT THEIR LEAD TO 2 - 0 SOON AFTER HALF-TIME FROM ANOTHER FREE-KICK. GREAVES AGAIN PICKED UP THE INITIAL KICK TO SLIP THE BALL FOR BYRNE'S SECOND GOAL.

    A CROWD OF 55,000 SAW A MATCH PLAYED AT LITTLE MORE THAN HALF PACE AND LACKING IN FIRE. TOWARDS THE END THE CROWD SIGNIFIED THEIR DISPLEASURE BY SLOW HANDCLAPPING.
