Match No. 355 - Wednesday, 4th April 1962, 3:00pm

  • "England were not as inspired as they should have been by a goal in the seventh minute. Haynes ran through brilliantly and shot and Fraydl, as much by accident as design, turned the ball against the post. There was a scramble before Crawford forced the ball into the net". Ray CrawfordOnly Goal, 7'
  • Assist: John Connelly. "Ten minutes before the interval Stotz's enthusiasm got the better of him in a tackle on Connelly and the referee had no hesitation in awarding a penalty. Flowers took it - and England were two up." Ron Flowers5th of 10 goals, 35' (pen)
  • Assist: Johnny Haynes. "...after a short corner in the 67th minute, Haynes placed the ball perfectly for Hunt to head a goal." Roger Hunt1st of 18 goals, 67'
