Customer Review

on 8 July 2000
Due to the consistent failure of England teams to recapture that glory, the World Cup Final of 1966 remains the only day on which England regained the game it had given to the rest of the world. Let us not forget, though, that it was a great game of football. Geoff Hurst became the first and only player to date to score a hat-trick in a World Cup Final ( remarkable, really, from a player who many believed should have been dropped in favour of Jimmy Greaves ). Hurst's second goal may not have clearly crossed the line ( the Germans certainly didn't think it should have counted ) but that could take nothing away from an England team that kept battling and, overall, were the better team on the day. Sadly, the late Bobby Moore remains the only England captain in history to hold the premier trophy of the game his country gave to the world.
