Notes

  • Penalty: StojaspalEckersley blatantly handles the ball on the line and a penalty is given. It's not a great penalty and Merrick gets a hand to it but can't stop the ball going in.
  • Penalty: Alf Ramsey1st scored from 1 taken (100.0%). England's 25th overall. "Ocwirk brought down Bailey in the area and Alf Ramsey stepped up to score from the penalty." Ramsey side-foots the ball into the bottom right. The keeper doesn't move.
