1966 World Cup
On February 23, 1966, Hurst faced West Germany in his senior England debut. He performed admirably, and his subsequent action against Scotland and Yugoslavia earned him a spot in the 1966 World Cup roster. Jimmy Greaves and Roger Hunt were chosen in his place for the last friendly game against Poland because he had underwhelming performances in the warm-up matches against Finland and Denmark. Greaves and Hunt were selected for the three group matches against Uruguay, Mexico, and France. However, Greaves needed stitches after suffering a serious leg gash in the latter match, and Hurst was called up to fill in for him in the quarterfinal match against Argentina.

As the game neared its last 15 minutes, it was still closely contested, but Martin Peters sent in a curling cross from the left flank, and Hurst, anticipating his clubmate’s move, dribbled in front of his defender to glance a near post header beyond the Argentine goalkeeper. England advanced to the semifinals with a 1-0 victory.
