  • Description

    ENGLAND, FIELDING THE ELEVEN PLAYERS WHO WON THE WORLD SOCCER CUP FINAL AGAINST WEST GERMANY IN JULY, FOUND SCORING POWER TONIGHT (WEDNESDAY) TO BEAT WALES 5-1. THE MATCH WAS A GROUP OF EIGHT EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP CUP MATCH AND WAS PLAYED AT WEMBLEY.

    ENGLAND NEVER LOOKED LIKE LOSING BUT THEIR COMPETENT VICTORY WAS MORE MARGINAL THAN THE SCORE SUGGESTS. TWO OF ENGLAND'S GOAL WERE DEFLECTED INTO THE NET AND WALES WERE UNLUCKY NOT TO ADD TO THEIR SCORE.

    GEOFF HURST, ONLY MAN TO SCORE THREE GOALS IN A WORLD CUP FINAL, SCORED TWICE TONIGHT. THE INSTINCTIVE TEAMWORK OF THE PLAYERS WAS APPARENT THROUGHOUT, AND PERHAPS THE BEST FEATURE OF THE ENGLAND FOOTBALL.

    THE FIRST GOAL CAME AFTER HALF AN HOUR. WITHIN THREE MINUTES IT WAS 2-0 WHEN HURST HEADED HOME A PERFECT CROSS FROM STYLES. BUT MOMENTS LATER WALES WERE BACK IN THE GAME WITH WYNN DAVIES SCORING THE FIRST GOAL AGAINST ENGLAND SINCE THEY BECAME WORLD CHAMPIONS.

    BEFORE HALF-TIME ENGLAND HAD SCORED AGAIN, BOBBY CHARLTON DRIVING HOME FROM 20 YARDS OUT. IT WAS CHARLTON'S 41ST GOAL FOR ENGLAND.

    SOON AFTER HALF-TIME THERE WERE SOME IMPRESSIVE WELSH MOVES, BUT THEN A SLIP BY TERRY HENNESSY, TURNED A HUNT SHOT INTO THE WELSH GOAL. ENGLAND NOW LED 4-1.

    JUST A FEW MINUTES FROM THE END ENGLAND SCORED YET AGAIN, IN THE PERSON OF JACKIE CHARLTON WHO HEADED IN A CENTRE FROM HURST.

    IT WAS ENGLAND'S 19TH GAME WITHOUT DEFEAT.
