  • Description

    In what has been described as a "bad tempered, spiteful game," the Italian League beat England's Football League by four goals to two Nov 1 in Milan, Italy.

    The crowd whistled, booed, and showered litter on to the pitch in protest against the English player hard tackling. In turn, the English players protested against the Italians body-checking and Jersey pulling. German referee Herr Ternieden had an extremely difficult time preventing ugly scenes among the players.

    Italy's first goal game when outside-left Tacchi floated a harmless looking shot over English goalkeeper Springett's head and into the net in the fifth minute. The second goal before half-time came when Trautmann, substitute for injured Springett, failed to gather a shot from Altafini in the 36th minute, and had no hope of stopping Hamrin's shot from the rebound.

    A third goal for Italy came in the second half when inside-left Altafini again got through the English defence and neatly flicked the ball past the advancing Trautmann. Then the English players seem to wake up.

    Within two minutes Law, the young Scottish centre-forward, scored England's first goal. Eighteen minutes from the game's end McParland, outside-left, scored again for England. But it was Altafini who settled the result with a fourth goal for Italy soon afterwards.
