July 11-30 1966 🇬🇧 JULES RIMET CUP
The Dow Jones is at 785, miniskirts come into existence, the race to the moon is on and USA troops are in Vietnam 🇻🇳. In England The Queen is hosting the tournament while history is also being made in the music world as the Beatles were releasing Yesterday and Today, and the Stones bringing Aftermath... At Wembley, Geoff Hurst would score the first and only hat trick in a World Cup final match. His third goal as time expired would seal the game, the cup, and also give England an important “extra goal” besides the controversial call by the Azerbaijan (USSR controlled) linesman that awarded the third goal to England when the ball never crossed the line... 🇬🇧🏆
Featured in the photo an original 1966 World Cup Program, and some extra pages with a photo of HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN, the page with England’s players, and an advertisement on the Daily Mirror from that era. -
