Sir Geoff Hurst – The third goal - signed spot colour 1966 print
This stunning colour photo print shows Hurst striking the ball for the controversial third England Goal in the 66 Final. It is personally signed by Sir Geoff and there are printed details of the goal at the bottom. It was signed in 2006 and measures in at an impressive 60cm by 43cm.
The 30 minutes of extra time in the 1966 World Cup final would shape the rest of Hurst's life. In the first period, Ball flicked a pass inside to Hurst who struck a strong shot towards goal, falling backwards as he did so. The ball beat the goalkeeper, hit the crossbar and bounced down before Wolfgang Weber, scorer of the Germans' second goal, headed it out for a corner. England's players wanted a goal; the Germans were just as adamant that the ball had not fully crossed the line. The referee, unsure, decided to consult his linesman, Tofik Bakhramov, on the right flank who had waved his flag to get the official's attention. The linesman, from Azerbaijan, signalled that the ball had crossed the line and the goal was given. The debate on Hurst's second goal will last forever.
