    Background: AN ENGLAND XI, PLAYING WITH ONLY THREE OF THE WORLD CUP SQUAD THAT HELD MEXICO TO A GOAL-LESS DRAW ON SUNDAY, SCORED A CONVINCING 4 - 0 WIN YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY) AGAINST A DEMORALISED MEXICAN NATIONAL SIDE AT THE JALISCO STADIUM, GUADALAJARA.

    CAPTAIN BOBBY MOORE, MARTIN PETERS AND ALAN BALL WERE RETAINED IN THE TEAM WHICH COMPRISED EIGHT RESERVES. NEWCOMERS ALAN CLARKE AND JEFF ASTLE SCORED TWO APIECE TO GIVE ENGLAND GREAT HOPES FOR THE 170 WORLD CUP CHAMPIONSHIP. THEY WILL PLAY THEIR PRELIMINARY MATCHES AT THE JALISCO STADIUM.

    THE FIRST GOAL CAME FROM A CORNER. ASTLE COLLECTED THE BALL, DECEIVED PEREZ WITH A BODY SWERVE AND CROSSED THE BALL FOR CLARKE TO FLICK THE BALL INTO THE NET.

    THE TWO STRIKERS, ASTLE AND CLARKE CAUSED CHAOS AMONG THE MEXICAN DEFENCE EVERY TIME THE LINKED UP FOR AN ATTACK. WITH THE HELP OF PETERS THE DOU WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SECOND GOAL -- THE HONOURS THIS TIME GOING TO ASTLE.

    ENGLAND'S ASCENDENCY WAS BASED ON MIDFIELD WHERE BALL AND PETERS WERE HELPED BY BELL AND HARVEY. BEFORE HALF-TIME ASTLE SLAMMED IN ENGLAND'S THIRD GOAL.

    SUBSTITUTES BOBBY CHARLTON AND ALAN MULLERY WERE BROUGHT ON AT HALF-TIME TO REPLACE PETERS AND BALL. MULLERY WAS LATER SENT OFF WITH PEREZ AFTER AN INCIDENT IN THE LAST FEW MINUTES OF THE GAME.

    A FINAL GOAL FROM CLARKE SEALED THE GAME FOR ENGLAND WHO MEET URUGUAY ON SUNDAY.
