1966: 30th July, The day England won the World Cup
Long-suffering fans of the England football team can always look back with nostalgia on one year: 1966.
This was the year Bobby Moore’s team defeated West Germany 4-2 in the World Cup final on 30 July, after a nail-biting and controversial match.
But two goals from Geoff Hurst in extra time secured a victory for the home team.
For the first – and only – time since the competition began in 1930, an England player was able to hold the Jules Rimet trophy aloft in triumph.
