MATCH STORY

As the literal and spiritual home of the beautiful game, pride for England’s national football team is practically genetically ingrained. But despite the head start, international success has been fleeting for The Three Lions. However, when the home of football finally had a chance to host its marquee event in 1966, all of the stars finally aligned. Powered by greats such as Bobby Charlton, Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst, and Gordon Banks, they topped their group before downing Argentina and Portugal en route to a final at Wembley against West Germany. A pair of early goals from each side left the pair level at half.  Then each would score within 10 minutes of one another again in the second half to force extra time. It was there that Hurst broke the deadlock, scoring twice — including a controversial third that the Germans argue never crossed the line — and gave England their lone major international trophy.

DESIGN STORY

The match side of the design is dominated by Saint George’s cross laid atop a series of shields. The reverse is red — meant to emulate the red shirts worn by England in the final at Wembley — adorned by the famous heraldic lions that adorn their chests.
