    ENGLAND, THE WORLD SOCCER CHAMPIONS, DEFEAT RUSSIA TWO GOALS TO NIL IN ROME'S OLYMPIC STADIUM ON SATURDAY (8 JUNE) TO TAKE THIRD PLACE IN THE EUROPEAN NATION'S CUP.

    (THE WINNERS AND 2ND PLACE WILL BE DECIDED ON MONDAY WHEN ITALY PLAY YUGOSLAVIA IN THE FINAL).

    ENGLAND, PLAYING EIGHT MEMBERS OF THE SIDE THAT WON THE WORLD CUP TWO YEARS AGO, WERE A GOAL UP AFTER 39 MINUTES WHEN BOBBY CHARLTON SCORED WITH A LOW LEFT FOOT SHOT FROM CLOSE IN. IT WAS CHARLTON'S 46TH GOAL FOR THE ENGLISH SIDE.

    ONE UP AT HALF TIME, ENGLAND PLAYED WITH A POISE AND ASSURANCE THAT HAD BEEN IN THEIR SEMI-FINAL GAME AGAINST YUGOSLAVIA WHICH LOST ONE-NIL.

    THEY UNDERLINED THEIR SUPERIORITY MIDWAY THROUGH THE SECOND HALF WHEN HURST PICKED UP A PASS FROM COLLEAGUE MARTIN PETERS. HE DRIBBLED PAST THE RUSSIAN GOALKEEPER TO SIDE FOOT THE BALL INTO THE NEXT. RUSSIAN PROTESTS THAT HURST HAD BEEN OFF SIDE WERE DISREGARDED BY THE HUNGARIAN REFEREE.
