When England won the World Cup


England won the World Cup on July 30, 1966. England won 4-2 (after extra time) beating West Germany in the final. England didn’t concede a goal until they reached the semi-final. Eusebio’s late consolation penalty in the semi-final was the first time England had conceded in the tournament.
Helmut Haller’s early opener for West Germany in the final was the first, and only, time England had been behind.
