Product Description

The 30th July 1966 is a date that is etched in the minds of all English football fans. It was the day that football really did come home to the country that invented the beautiful game. In front of a capacity crowd at Wembley Stadium, Alf Ramsey’s team played their part in one of the most memorable World Cup finals in the history of football, beating West Germany 4-2. As Geoff Hurst was scoring his third goal in the last minute of extra time, the crowd had begun to invade the pitch and BBC commentator Kenneth Wolstenholme, uttered the immortal words "Some people are on the pitch, they think it’s all over. It is now!" Her Majesty the Queen handed the Jules Rimet Trophy to the captain, Bobby Moore and England were crowned World Cup winners amid magical scenes, which have become some of the most famous in living history.

5.0 out of 5 stars A canny set, like 4 Aug 2008
I bought this DVD because I recently got into football. And apparently this is a legendary match, as good as it gets. I watched, was impressed. But, my how football has changed! And if you watch it from a historical perspective, it's not just the result that stands out. From the big heavy leather ball that they hoof around, to the people who just sit around the stadium, this is how football used to be played. It's not as fast and athletic and fluid as it's modernday grandson, but more slower, calcualting, like a game of chess. It's a really fantastic game, and also takes you back to the 60's. The extra replica of the original programme was a fantastic idea including the adverts from yesteryear and really hammers home the atmosphere of back when football really did come home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Actually a good game 9 April 2013

Bought this for my son and we watched it together as I had never seen the full game. It's worth watching even though you know the result and the programme is an added bonus.
