USA 1 – 0 England


USA. USA. USA. What ignominy to suffer for the English. Their first outing to the World Cup with the legend Stanley Matthews in their ranks, having to play this team of Yankees. Most of whom are butchers, bank clerks and such like. Stan didn’t actually play in the game but Alf Ramsey, Tom Finney and Billy Wright did. Making the end result even more unfeasible. England tried to blame it on their blue kit in the end. Laughable.
