More Info:
  • In 1973, England faced Poland in what was a must-win match to qualify for the 1974 World Cup in West Germany. What followed was an infamous piece of English footballing history, when Jan Tomaszewski was the goalkeeper that kept out 35 of 36 of England's shots - the one scored being a penalty. But Poland's earlier goal that slid through England's keeper meant that despite England having 36 shots to Poland's 2, a 1-1 draw kept England from qualifying. It was to cost Sir Alf Ramsey his job.
