England 3 N Ireland 1
England 3 Northern Ireland 1, Wembley Stadium, British Home Championship, April 21, 1970. Manchester United´s Bobby Charlton celebrated his 100th international appearance for England by scoring the final goal in his country´s 3-1 win over Northern Ireland.
England raced into the lead when Martin Peters, who had joined Tottenham Hotspur from West Ham United for a record breaking transfer fee of £200,000 the previous month, headed home a well-taken corner-kick by Bobby Charlton in the sixth minute of the match. George Best equalised for Northern Ireland five minutes into the second period, but Geoff Hurst restored the advantage for The Three Lions with a deflected header from a Keith Newton cross three minutes before the hour mark, and with nine minutes left of the game Charlton added a third goal for the hosts to secure a fully deserved 3-1 victory against the Irish.
