ARCHIVE TV ADVENT CALENDAR DAY TEN: 10 Dec 1969

And, given what’s happening later today, let’s look at International Football – England v Portugal.

The first meeting between the two sides since the famous 1966 World Cup semi-final. Despite being a friendly, 100,000 fans packed into the ‘Empire Stadium’ (i.e. Wembley) to see a Jackie Charlton goal separate the sides.

This is currently on eBay if you’re confident a repeat of this fixture will happen in the World Cup semi a few days from now.
