Match No. 486 - Wednesday, 30th October 1974, 7:45pm

  • Assist: Dave Thomas. "But the arrival of Thomas immediately switched the attention over to the right. With socks rolled down Thomas started to run hard and well at the Czech defence, who fouled him peremptorily, twice in quick succession. That proved their undoing. Madeley took the second free kick and rolled the ball to Thomas, whose centre found Channon rising unchallenged near the far post to head past Viktor." Mick Channon8th of 21 goals. Header from 8 yards., 71'
  • Assist: Mick Channon. "With nine minutes to go Channon's cunningly angled through pass caught th Czechs lying square and Bell, who had sauntered through from the halfway line, slid the ball in." Colin Bell6th of 9 goals. Right-footed from 14 yards., 81'
  • Assist: Mick Channon. "Two minutes after this Bell calmly switched the ball out to Channon, who was aiming for his favourite spot to the left of the goal, and ran on to head a centre past Viktor..." Colin Bell7th of 9 goals. Header from 6 yards., 83'
