Commentary by Raymond Glendenning on the second half of the first match of the F.A. Continental Tour, with summaries by Charles Buchan, football correspondent of the News Chronicle.
From Stades Colombes, Paris
The Football Association is making its usual Continental Tour at the end of the football season in this country, and will be playing matches against France, Spain, and Portugal. The second half of the match against Portugal next Sunday is also to be broadcast in the Light Programme, but unfortunately it is technically impossible to broadcast from Spain.
The last full International against France was played at Highbury in 1951, when the result was a draw, 2-2. England has played Spain three times and has lost twice - in Madrid as long ago as 1929, 4 goals to 3, and in the World Cup in Rio de Janeiro in 1950, 1-0. Our only victory was at Highbury in 1931 when the score was England 7, Spain 1. Three matches have also been played against Portugal, all of them since the war. Two took place in Lisbon and one at Goodison Park, Everton, and England won all three.
