It was a match that has made heroes ofthe players who donned the famous white shirt that day and beat the Germans ina dramatic contest that went into extra-time and took everyone who witnessed iton an emotional rollercoaster. Many still consider the game thegreatest final in World Cup history and the controversy over whether England’sthird goal in extra time from Sir Geoff Hurst crossed the goal line still ragesto this day. West Germany took the lead at Wembleythrough a Helmut Haller header but England were level seven minutes later whenHurst latched onto to Bobby Moore’s freekick and scored. It was to 2-1 toRamsey’s team 13 minutes before the end of the second-half when Martin Peters’fierce half-volley rippled the German net but English celebration were put onhold when Wolfgang Webber equalised with seconds to go and the match headedinto extra time. Hurst’s second goal and England’s thirdwas mired in controversy after Russian linesman Tofik Bakramov ruled thestriker’s instinctive shot had crossed the line but any doubts about England’svictory were allayed when Hurst completed his hat-trick late on and Mooreproudly climbed the steps to the Royal Box to collect the Jules Rimet trophyfrom The Queen.
