England's greatest ever sporting triumph and a truly golden moment in football history can be seen again in all its glory on a new DVD being released by BBC Worldwide on 20th May. 1966 World Cup Final - England v West Germany offers you once again a grandstand seat to see what has justifiably been called the most dramatic World Cup final ever played.
"You've beaten them once this afternoon. Now go out and do it again.." With these words ALF RAMSEY sent out his weary players for a gruelling half-hour of extra time, having already played ninety minutes of entertaining football against a West German side determined to play their part in a thrilling final.
For twelve long minutes it had seemed that MARTIN PETERS' goal had won the cup for England. Then, in the last minute of normal time, WOLFGANG WEBER had desperately stretched for the ball and stabbed it past the despairing GORDON BANKS. The capacity crowd fell silent. The England players looked shattered.
The subsequent thirty minutes proved even more dramatic. Millions witnesses the most controversial moment in World Cup history, the first ever hat-trick in the Final and outburst of relief and celebration when the final whistle blew as Kenneth Wolstenholme uttered his immortal line, "There's some people on the pitch, they think it's all over - it is now!"
Thirty years on the debate and the controversy still lingers. England's third goal scored by GEOFF HURST has now been confirmed by scientists as never having crossed the line. The decision to award the goal by Swedish referee and Russian linesman still rankles with the German players and public alike. But it's all history, glorious football history…..England beat West Germany 4-2 after extra time to become world champions.
