Nineteen Sixty-six and All that
Catapulted to fame in only his eighth international, Geoff Hurst scored a hat trick against West Germany in the 1966 World Cup final. His final goal, 'They think it's all over ... It is now', has been played so many times that it has dominated his life ever since. This revealing and thoughtful autobiography shows that there is far more to the man than that one day. He relives the golden era in which he played, reveals some astonishing behind-the-scenes stories of events with England and his club sides that have never previously emerged, and he offers his authoritative views on the modern game.
This 40th anniversary edition has been updated to include Geoff Hurst's forthright views on England's performances in the 2002 World Cup and Euro 2004, together with his thoughts on the current players and their chances in the World Cup in Germany of emulating the events at Wembley 40 years ago.
