- World Cup 1966 -

The 1966 FIFA Football World Championship was hosted by England. Eusebio stole the show, but the nine goals he produced were not enough for Portugal to win the tournament. Instead Alf Ramsey's England ended up lifting the cup, after beating Germany in an exciting final that needed extra time and featured what is undoubtedly the most controversial goal in World Cup history. Defending champions Brazil failed to progress beyond the group-stage, just like Italy, who were ousted by North Korea.
