World Cup Countdown day 3

Did the winner in the 1966 World Cup final cross the line? The English said yes. The West Germans said no. The linesman said yes. And the referee awarded it to the relief of the home side. England went ahead 3-2 in extra time before Hurst completed his hat-trick moments before the end to secure the title at Wembley.

3 days to go until the 2018 World Cup starts! Are you ready?
