    Background: ENGLAND CROWNED A 100 YEARS OF SOCCER BY BEATING THE REST OF THE WORLD 2-1 TODAY (WEDNESDAY) IN THE "MATCH OF THE CENTURY" TO CELEBRATE THE BIRTH OF FOOTBALL.A 100,000 CROWD JAMMED WEMBLEY STADIUM, LONDON, TO SEE THE MOST EXPENSIVE ARRAY OF PLAYERS-- THEY WERE WORTH GBP2 MILLION -- EVER TO APPEAR ON AN ENGLISH PITCH.MILLIONS OF OTHER SOCCER FANS WATCHED THE GAME ON THE EUROVISION LINK.

    ALL THE GOALS CAME IN A THRILL-PACKED SECOND HALF.ENGLAND GOT THE FIRST AFTER 21 MINUTES THROUGH RIGHT-WINGER TERRY PAINE.HE POUNCED ON A LOOSE BALL AND DROVE IT INTO THE NET FROM CLOSE RANGE.

    AFTER UWE SEELER (WEST GERMANY), FRENC PUSKAS AND ALFREDO D.STEFANO (BOTH SPAIN) HAD ALL MISSED CHANCES TO EVEN THE SCORE, IT WAS SCOTLAND'S DENIS LAW WHO GOT THE EQUALISER IN THE 83RD MINUTE, ROLLING THE BALL INTO THE NET AFTER SOME FINE PLAY BY SEELER.

    ENGLAND WENT ALL OUT FOR VICTORY, AND IT WAS THIRD TIME LUCKY WHEN JIMMY GREAVES, PERHAPS THE BEST PLAYER ON THE FIELD, NETTED THREE MINUTES FROM THE FINISH TO GIVE ENGLAND A WELL-DESERVED VICTORY.IN THE PRECEDING FEW MINUTES, BOTH BOBBY CHARLTON AND GREAVES HAD HIT THE UPRIGHT POST WITH THE GOALKEEPER BEATEN.

    THE WORLD STARS LACKED A FAST-MOVING , UNIFIED ATTACK.THOUGH THEY GOT POSSESSION OFTEN, THEY THREW AWAY THEIR CHANCES BY DALLYING IN THE PENALTY AREA.

    THE REST OF THE WORLD TEAM PLAYED ALL 16 MEMBERS OF THE PARTY THEY BROUGHT TO ENGLAND, AND MADE FIVE CHANGES IN THE SECOND HALF.
