Background: England are out of the World Cup. The holders were beaten 3-2 by West Germany in a cliff-hanging quarter final in Leon. As in the 1966 World Cup final between the two sides, when England won 4-2, the game went into extra time before the Germans marched triumphantly into a semi-final place against Italy.
After 32 minutes of scrappy play, England defender Kith Newton burst up the right wing and crossed to Alan Mullery to hammer in a close range goal.
West Germany fell further behind in the 50th minute when newton again started a move which ended with Peters scoring England's second.
England were so completely dominant that they now dictated the pace of the game. But the Germans staged a magnificent recovery. Franz Beckenbauer pulled one goal back after 69 minutes and Uwe Seeler scored the equaliser 12 minutes later.
With the score at 90 minutes still 2-2, the exhausted players started half an hour of extra time.
The Germans gained revenge for the 1966 final when striker Gerd Muller notched his eighth goal of the series -- side-footing the ball into the net in the 108th minute. England strove desperately for an equaliser, but the Germans survived the onslaught to win a great quarter final clash.
