    ENGLAND, FAVOURED BEHIND BRAZIL TO WIN THE WORLD CUP SERIES IN ENGLAND IN JULY, SCORED THE WINNING GOAL FOUR MINUTES FROM HALF TIME.

    ENGLAND LAUNCHED AN EXPERIMENTAL SIDE AGAINST THE WEST GERMANS. IT WAS NOBBY STILES, THE MANCHESTER UNITED WING-HALF WHO PLAYED IN CENTRE-FORWARD POSITION, WHO SCORED FOR ENGLAND.

    THE MATCH WAS PLAYED ON A WET PITCH AND THERE WERE FEW SPARKLING PERFORMANCES.

    WEST GERMANY WAS UNLUCKY TO HAVE MISSED AN EQUALISING GOAL FIFTEEN MINUTES BEFORE TIME WHEN HEISS KICKED HOME A SMART BALL. HOWEVER, THE REFEREE RULED THE BALL HAD CROSSED THE BY-LINE BEFORE BEING PLAYED.

    BOTH ENGLAND AND WEST GERMANY HAD TO EMPLOY SUBSTITUTES BEFORE HALF TIME. KEITH NEWTON RECEIVED A BADLY BRUISED LEG AND HEINZ HORNIG RECEIVED A HEAD INJURY.

    A CROWD OF 75-THOUSAND WATCHED THE MATCH. IT PROVIDED ENGLAND WITH ITS NINTH VICTORY OVER GERMAN NATIONAL TEAMS IN TEN MATCHES. THE REMAINING MATCH WAS A DRAW.
