“Spain 4, Eng­land 3: Spain scored vic­tory against the English team be­fore 25,000 spec­ta­tors in Madrid.

The first goal was scored by Eng­land af­ter 15 min­utes of play, when Carter took full ad­van­tage of a mis­kick by the goal­keeper Zamora.

Five min­utes later, there was a melee in front of the Span­ish goal. Brad­ford got his head to the ball and the gool­keeper failed to stop it.

But the home side did not slacken their ef­forts in spite of the dou­ble re­verse, and they made a rapid ad­vance up­field to score through Ru­bio. Laz­cano then scored a won­der­ful shot as the in­ter­val came.

Spain, now greatly en­cour­aged, showed ex­cel­lent form af­ter the re­sump­tion, but Carter again put his side ahead from the penalty spot.

Near the end Ru­bio scoredthe equaliser, be­fore Goiburu beat Hufton with a great first-time shot.

When the win­ning goal was scored the crowd went wild, and spec­ta­tors broke onto the field to em­brace the play­ers.” A gen­uine re­port on Eng­land’s first loss to a con­ti­nen­tal foe
