England beating West Germany 4–2 at home to win the football World Cup was a particular highlight. There had been refereeing controversy aplenty in the matches before the final of 30 July, which provided even more. In the last minute of match time, with England 2–1 up, the Germans equalised after a handball unseen by the referee. In extra time, a shot by England’s Geoff Hurst bounced off the bar and just inside – or perhaps just outside – the goal-line.
