This was manager Alf Ramsey's 113th and final game in charge of England. He was sacked on 1 May 1974. A FA statement read: "The Football Association wishes at this time to record its deep appreciation for all that Sir Alf has accomplished and the debt owed to him by English football for his unbending loyalty and dedication and the high level of integrity he has brought to world football."
