England-Germany: the sting of the 1966 World Cup still hurts

Date:

There are defeats that are never forgotten. For many years to pass. And this is what is happening in Germany, where these days there is nothing to talk about except revenge Popp, Dabritz, Oberdorf and with his fans to remove the thorn in the men’s final of the 1966 World Cup, where England beat the Mannschaft players at the same legendary Wembley.

The defeat reappeared at least 56 years later. “Germany still have a chance to take revenge for the 2-4 defeat in the 1966 final,” wrote the popular daily ‘Bild’, adding that 3,000 supporters were expected in London.

It speaks of “controversial goal at Wembleywhich refers to the goal of climbing the scoreboard, the task of Geoffrey Hurst, which hit the crossbar, fell to the ground and, as is still insisted, did not cross the goal line. England finally prevailed in that theoretical goal which heightened the historic rivalry between the two teams. The thorn is still stuck, because you can see that on social networks it is said that at least this time there is a VAR to resolve the doubts.

German chancellor Olaf Scholz announced via his Twitter account that he would attend this “dream final” to support his team, whom he congratulated on its “extraordinary performance”.

It will be the first Euro Women’s final at Wembley, which has hosted the men’s final twice, in 1996 and 2021, as well as the 1966 World Cup final and the annual Women’s FA Cup final since 2015.

Almost ten years ago, Wembley hosted the 2012 Women’s Olympic Soccer Final on August 9, when the United States defeated Japan 2-1 with two goals from Carly Lloyd.
