Notes

  • Hungary goal disallowedHungary have a seemingly legitimate goal by Hidegkuti chalked off after 11 minutes for offside. TV footage seems to suggest he was quite a few yards onside.
  • Penalty: Alf Ramsey3rd scored from 3 taken (100.0%). England's 27th overall. "Alf Ramsey scored a penalty for England...after Robb had been brought down by Grosics..." Ramsey cooly side-foots the penalty into the bottom right corner.
