Episode Summary

Geoff Hurst - England, 1966
Hurst earned not only the headlines but a knighthood for his undeniably impressive hat trick. After West Germany went up 12 minutes in, Hurst equalized on a header from a free kick near the box. Later, a last-gasp Germany goal meant extra time. There, Hurst became a World Cup legend. His goal 11 minutes into the first period is one of the most controversial moments in World Cup history. His volley hit the top of the crossbar and bounced down, but it was -- and remains -- unclear whether it landed on or just over the line. The linesman awarded the goal. His second came as Germany pushed forward. Hurst launched a vicious counterattack and scored his third, making him the only player in World Cup history to score a hat trick in the final.moreless
