Artist's Description

Buyer’s Booth Picture

The 1966 FIFA World Cup was held in England from July 11 to July 30. England won the final, beating West Germany 4-2, giving them their first and as yet, only World Cup triumph, and notably the first controversial final match in the world cup history.

London’s Wembley Stadium was the venue for the final, and a crowd of 98,000 crammed inside the famous stadium. Just 12 minutes had gone when Helmut Haller put West Germany ahead, but Geoff Hurst levelled just four minutes later. Martin Peters then put England ahead again in the 78th minute and England looked set to claim the title. However, the referee awarded a free kick to West Germany with one minute left, the ball was aimed goalward and Wolfgang Weber poked it across the line to level the scores at 2-2 and the game went to extra time.

In the 98th minute Hurst’s shot hit the crossbar, bounced down into the goalmouth and the long running debate has gone on ever since on whether it did cross the line. In the last minute Hurst completed his, and the only ever, World Cup Final hat-trick, just as the crowd started to invade the pitch

BBC commentator Kenneth Wolstenholme’s historic commentary has become one of the most famous sports related lines: “Some people are on the pitch. They think it’s all over.” (Hurst hammers the ball into the net) “It is now!”.
