  • Description

    ENGLAND WERE HELD TO A ONE-ALL DRAW BY AN INEXPERIENCED POLAND AT GOODISON PARK IN LIVERPOOL TONIGHT (WEDNESDAY). A GOAL FROM CAPTAIN AND LEFT HALF BOBBY MOORE IN THE 75TH MINUTE SAVED ENGLAND FROM AN EMBARRASSING DEFEAT.

    POLAND KICKED OFF BUT THE MOORE EXPERIENCED ENGLAND WERE SOON IN ATTACK. WHILE ENGLAND HAD MOST OF THE PLAY THEY FOUND THE SOGGY TURF A HANDICAP AND THE ENGLAND FORWARDS TENDED TO BUNCH TOGETHER. THIS HELPED THE POLISH DEFENDERS WHO TACKLED HARD AND WERE STRONGER IN THE AIR.

    IN THE 36TH MINUTE, POLAND SCORED FROM ONE OF THEIR RARE SORTIES INTO ATTACK. FROM A THROW-IN BANAS, WHO HAD JUST COME ONTO THE FIELD AS A REPLACEMENT, CENTRED AND CENTRE FORWARD SADEK JUST EDGED THE BALL INTO GOAL.

    IN THE SECOND HALF ENGLAND KEPT UP THEIR HEAVY PRESSURE ON THE POLISH GOAL, BUT WITHOUT RESULT. WINGER ALAN BALL MISSED ONE CHANCE WHEN HE SHOT WIDE FROM A SCORING POSITION.

    ENGLAND KEPT ON COMING BUT POLISH GOALKEEPER SZEJA CALMLY KEPT THEM OUT. ALTHOUGH POLAND HARDLY VENTURED INTO ATTACK IN THE SECOND HALF, ENGLAND WERE FACING DEFEAT UNTIL THE 75 MINUTE.

    WITH THE POLISH DEFENCE PACKING THE GOALMOUTH, MOORE ROSE ABOVE THE PACK TO HEAD IN THE EQUALIZER. ENGLAND WERE IN COMMAND UNTIL THE FINAL WHISTLE BUT COULD NOT PRODUCE THE WINNER.
