Sir Geoffrey Charles Hurst MBE (born 8 December 1941) is an English former professional footballer. A striker, he remains the only man to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final. When England recorded a 4–2 victory over West Germany at Wembley Stadium in 1966.

Hurst began his career with West Ham United, where he scored 242 goals in 500 first team appearances. There he won the FA Cup in 1964 and the European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1965. Sold to Stoke City in 1972 for £80,000. After three seasons with Stoke he finished his Football League career with West Bromwich Albion in 1976. Hurst went to play football in Ireland (Cork Celtic) and the USA (Seattle Sounders) before returning to England to manage non-league Telford United. He also coached in the England set-up before a two-year stint as Chelsea manager from 1979 to 1981. He later coached Kuwait SC before leaving the game to concentrate on his business commitments.

In total he scored 24 goals in 49 England appearances; and as well as success in the 1966 World Cup. He also appeared at UEFA Euro 1968 and the 1970 FIFA World Cup. Also had a brief cricket career, making one first-class appearance for Essex in 1962, before concentrating on football.

 

1966 World Cup

Hurst made his senior England debut against West Germany on 23 February 1966. He played well, and further performances against Scotland and Yugoslavia secured him a place in the squad for the 1966 FIFA World Cup. However, he put in mediocre performances in warm-up games against Finland and Denmark, and so Jimmy Greaves and Roger Hunt were instead picked for the final friendly game against Poland. Greaves and Hunt were indeed picked for the three group games against Uruguay, Mexico and France, but in the latter game, Greaves suffered a deep gash to his leg which required stitches, and Hurst was called up to take his place in the quarter final against Argentina.

Argentina, talented but preferred a tougher approach to the game, which saw them reduced to ten men. The game was still tightly contested as it entered its final 15 minutes, but then Martin Peters swung over a curling cross from the left flank and Geoff Hurst Autographs, anticipating his clubmate’s action, got in front of his marker to glance a near post header past the Argentine keeper. England won 1–0 and were in the semi-finals.

Greaves sadly not fit for the game against Portugal; so Geoff Hurst signed autograph and Hunt continued up front. England won 2–1 thanks to two goals by Bobby Charlton; the second of which set up by Hurst. As the final against the Germans approached, the media learnt of Greaves’ return to fitness and, while appreciating Hurst’s contribution, started to call for the return of England’s most prolific centre forward.
