Welcome to my England Football Team Instagram Page.
The first photo just had to be the most iconic photo in our Nations history. England captain Bobby Moore holds aloft the World Cup (Jules Rimet trophy) as the team gather around to celebrate.
The 1966 FIFA World Cup tournament was played in England between 11 & 30 July 1966. It was the eighth FIFA World Cup, the first having been played in 1930. England defeated West Germany 4–2 in the final to win their first World Cup; the match had finished at 2–2 after 90 minutes & went to extra time, when Geoff Hurst scored two goals to complete his hat-trick, the first to be scored in a World Cup final, with spectators storming the pitch during the fourth goal.
In addition to an attendance of 96,924 at the stadium, the British television audience peaked at 32.3 million viewers, making it the United Kingdom's most-watched television event ever.
England were the fifth nation to win the event, & the third host nation to win after Uruguay in 1930 & Italy in 1934. Brazil were the defending champions, but they failed to progress from the group stage.
