England beat West Germany 4–2 in the final, winning the World Cup. With this victory England became the third host to win the tournament after Uruguay in 1930 and Italy in 1934, and to this date it is the only major championship England has won. England '66 held a 28-year FIFA record for having the largest number of average attendance until it was surpassed by the United States in 1994.

The match was contested by England and West Germany on 30 July 1966 at Wembley Stadium in London, and had an attendance of 96,924.[1] England won 4–2 after extra time to win the Jules Rimet Trophy. The England team became known as the "wingless wonders", on account of their then-unconventional narrow attacking formation, described at the time as a 4–3–3.[2] The match is remembered for England's only World Cup trophy, Geoff Hurst's hat-trick – the only one ever scored in a World Cup Final – and the controversial third goal awarded to England by referee Gottfried Dienst and linesman Tofik Bakhramov.

After 12 minutes, Siegfried Held sent a cross into the English penalty area which Ray Wilson misheaded to Helmut Haller, who got his shot on target. Jackie Charlton and goalkeeper Gordon Banks failed to deal with the shot which went in making it 1–0 to West Germany. In the 19th minute, Wolfgang Overath conceded a free kick, which Moore took immediately, floating a cross into the West German area, where Geoff Hurst rose unchallenged and levelled the scores with a downward glancing header. The teams were level at half-time, and after 77 minutes England won a corner. Alan Ball delivered the ball to Geoff Hurst whose deflected shot from the edge of the area found Martin Peters. He produced the final shot, beating the West German keeper from eight yards to make the score 2–1 to England. The Germans pressed for an equaliser in the closing moments, and in the last minute the referee awarded them a free-kick when Uwe Seeler backed into Jack Charlton who protested that he was the one who had been fouled. The kick was taken by Lothar Emmerich, with the ball going to George Cohen who managed to block it, but the ball bounced across the England six-yard box and Wolfgang Weber struck home to level the scores at 2–2 and force the match into extra time. The German equaliser was controversial since the ball had appeared to strike the hand of Karl-Heinz Schnellinger whilst travelling through the penalty area.[3] Gordon Banks maintains that the ball struck Schnellinger's hand.[4] Extra time Geoff Hurst's "Wembley Goal" England pressed forward and created several chances. In particular, with five minutes gone, Bobby Charlton struck the post and sent another shot just wide. With eleven minutes of extra time gone, Alan Ball put in a cross and Geoff Hurst swivelled and shot from close range. The ball hit the underside of the cross bar, bounced down – on the line – and was cleared. The referee Gottfried Dienst was uncertain if it had been a goal and consulted his linesman, Tofik Bakhramov from the USSR, who in a moment of drama indicated that it was. After non-verbal communication, as they had no common language, the Swiss referee awarded the goal to the home team. The crowd and the audience of 400 million television viewers were left arguing whether the goal should have been given or not. England's third goal has remained controversial ever since the match. According to the Laws of the Game the definition of a goal is when "the whole of the ball passes over the goal line".[5] In England, supporters cite the good position of the linesman and the statement of Roger Hunt, the nearest England player to the ball, who claimed it was a goal and that was why he wheeled away in celebration rather than attempting to tap the rebounding ball in. A study conducted by the Engineering Department at Oxford University argued that the ball did not cross the line entirely and that it was 6 cm away from being a goal.[6] Furthermore, there exists colour footage of Hurst's goal, taken from another angle by an amateur filmer situated on the stands and having a view almost parallel to the English goal line. This film material claims that the ball did not cross the goal line in full.[7] Some Germans cited possible bias of the Soviet linesman (Bakhramov was from Azerbaijan),[8] especially as the USSR had just been defeated in the semi-finals by West Germany.[9] Bakhramov later stated in his memoirs that he believed the ball had bounced back not from the crossbar, but from the net and that he was not able to observe the rest of the scene, so it did not matter where the ball hit the ground anyway. (An apocryphal story exists that Bakhramov, when asked why he gave the goal later, simply replied "Stalingrad". There is no evidence that this is genuine.) Swiss referee Gottfried Dienst did not see the scene. One minute before the end of play, the West Germans sent their defenders forward in a desperate attempt to score a last-minute equaliser. Winning the ball, Bobby Moore picked out the unmarked Geoff Hurst with a long pass, which Hurst carried forward while some spectators began streaming onto the field and Hurst scored moments later. Hurst later admitted that his blistering shot was as much intended to send the ball as far into the Wembley stands as possible should it miss, in order to kill time on the clock.[10] The final goal gave rise to one of the most famous sayings in English football, when the BBC commentator Kenneth Wolstenholme described the situation as follows: "And here comes Hurst. He's got... some people are on the pitch, they think it's all over. It is now! It's four!". The matchball from the final is now on display in the National Football Museum in Manchester.

In recognition of Moore and other West Ham United players' contribution to the win, the club and Newham Borough Council jointly commissioned a statue of this scene. On 28 April 2003 Prince Andrew as president of the Football Association, duly unveiled the World Cup Sculpture (also called The Champions) in a prominent place near West Ham's Boleyn Ground (Upton Park), at the junction of Barking Road and Green Street. The one and a half life-size bronze piece was sculpted by Philip Jackson.[11] Cultural impact The final is the most watched event ever on British television, as of September 2009, attracting 32.60 million viewers. In Germany, a goal resulting from a shot bouncing off the crossbar and hitting the line is called a Wembley-Tor (Wembley Goal) due to the controversial nature of Hurst's second goal. This goal has been parodied a large number of times. Some of the most notable include: England's third goal was referenced in a 2006 Adidas advertisem*nt, where English midfielder Frank Lampard takes a shot at German keeper Oliver Kahn, and a similar event happens. On 27 June 2010 at that year's World Cup a goal by Lampard was disallowed which would have levelled the second-round game against Germany 2–2 (Germany won 4–1). Kenneth Wolstenholme's commentary on the third goal that bounced on the line, "It's a goal!" was used (along with the sound of breaking glass) in the tape-looped coda of an early version of The Beatles song "Glass Onion", available on the album Anthology 3. Kit Kat parodied the controversial third goal in an advert for the Kit Kat bar. The goal is scored and the linesman was shown about to eat a Kit Kat bar as opposed to following the game. Upon realising that a possible goal has been scored, he hastily stuffs the bar into his mouth and awards the goal. In August 1966 a special 4d stamp marked ENGLAND WINNERS was issued by the British Post Office to celebrate the victory and which soared in value to up to 15 shillings each on the back of public enthusiasm for the victory before falling back in value when the public realised it was not rare. England's win in the final also helped fans to create the Two World Wars and One World Cup chant. 2009 receipt of winners medals The players and staff of England's winning squad who did not get medals in 1966 received them on 10 June 2009 after a ceremony at 10 Downing Street in London. Initially, only the 11 players on the pitch at the end of the match received medals, but FIFA later awarded medals to every non-playing squad and staff member from every World Cup-winning country from 1930 to 1974 The Daily Mirror (informally The Mirror) is a British national daily tabloid newspaper which was founded in 1903. From 1985 to 1987, and from 1997 to 2002, the title on its masthead was simply The Mirror. It had an average daily circulation of 1,083,938 in March 2012.[1] Its Sunday sister paper is the Sunday Mirror. The Mirror has had a number of owners. It was founded by Alfred Harmsworth, who sold it to his brother Harold Harmsworth (from 1914 Lord Rothermere) in 1913. In 1963 a restructuring of the media interests of the Harmsworth family led to the Mirror becoming a part of International Publishing Corporation. The Mirror was owned by Robert Maxwell between 1984 and 1991. The paper went through a protracted period of crisis after his death before merging with the regional newspaper group Trinity in 1999 to form Trinity Mirror.

Notable issues Front page of the Daily Mirror after publishing faked photographs. On 2 April 1996, the Daily Mirror was printed entirely on blue paper. This was done as a marketing exercise with Pepsi-Cola, who on the same day had decided to relaunch their cans with a blue design instead of the traditional red and white logo. In May 2004, the Daily Mirror published what it claimed were photos of British soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners at an unspecified location in Iraq. The decision to publish the photos, subsequently shown to be hoaxes, led to Morgan's sacking as editor on 14 May 2004. The Daily Mirror then stated that it was the subject of a "calculated and malicious hoax".[38] The newspaper issued a statement apologising for the printing of the pictures. The paper's deputy editor, Des Kelly, took over as acting editor during the crisis. The tabloid's rival, The Sun, offered a £50,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of those accused of faking the Mirror photographs. In February 2008 both the Daily and the Sunday Mirror implied that TV presenter Kate Garraway was having an affair. She sued for libel, receiving an apology and compensation payment in April 2008.[39] On 18 September 2008, David Anderson, a British sports journalist writing for the Mirror, repeated a claim deriving from vandalism on Wikipedia's entry for Cypriot football team AC Omonia, which asserted that their fans were called "The Zany Ones" and liked to wear hats made from discarded shoes. The claim was part of Anderson's match preview ahead of AC Omonia's game with Manchester City, which appeared in the web and print versions of the Mirror, with the nickname also quoted in subsequent editions on 19 September.[40][41] The episode was featured in Private Eye. On 12 May 2011, the High Court of England and Wales granted the Attorney General permission to bring a case for contempt against The Sun and the Daily Mirror for the way they had reported on the arrest of a person of interest in the Murder of Joanna Yeates.[42][43] On 29 July, the Court ruled that both newspapers had been in contempt of court, fining the Daily Mirror £50,000 and The Sun £18,000.[44] On 19 July 2011 The Mirror published an article labelling comedian Frankie Boyle as a racist. He later sued for defamation and libel, winning £54,650 in damages and a further £4,250 for a claim about his departure from Mock the Week. The Mirror had argued he was "forced to quit" but this was found to be libellious by the court.[45][46] Notable people Editors 1903 to 1904: Mary Howarth 1904 to 1907: Hamilton Fyfe 1907 to 1915: Alexander Kenealy 1915 to 1916: Ed Flynn 1916 to 1931: Alexander Campbell 1931 to 1934: Leigh Brownlee 1934 to 1948: Cecil Thomas 1948 to 1953: Silvester Bolam 1953 to 1961: Jack Nener 1961 to 1971: Lee Howard 1971 to 1974: Tony Miles 1974 to 1975: Michael Christiansen 1975 to 1985: Mike Molloy 1985 to 1990: Richard Stott 1990 to 1991: Roy Greenslade 1991 to 1992: Richard Stott 1992 to 1994: David Banks 1994 to 1995: Colin Myler 1995 to 2004: Piers Morgan 2004 to 2012: Richard Wallace 2012 to date: Lloyd Embley Source: Tabloid Nation[12] Notable columnists Notable former and current columnists of the Daily Mirror include: The 3AM Girls (gossip columnists); William Connor (opinion under the pseudonym Cassandra (1935–1967)); Richard Hammond (motoring and Saturday columnist); Oliver Holt (sports columnist); Kevin Maguire (UK politics); Tony Parsons (Monday columnist); Penman & Greenwood (investigators); Fiona Phillips (Saturday columnist); Brian Reade (Thursday columnist; also does a sports column on Saturdays); and Keith Waterhouse (largely humorous (1993–2009)).

For the last 100 years, the Daily Mirror has led the way with the greatest scoops, ground-breaking campaigns, and the most talked-about stunts. The Mirror was the first newspaper to carry a photograph on the front page, the first to reveal the true nature of King Edward's relationship with Wallis Simpson, and first to hold a wedding in its offices. Over the years we have also proved pigs can fly, hired racing drivers to get the story first, and discovered the Rolling Stones. Here are the hundred greatest moments from the Daily Mirror's illustrious history. SCOOPS 1. We whipped up the first Royal tabloid scandal by publishing a front page photograph of the late King Edward VII on his death-bed on May 10, 1910. The Mirror was accused of stealing the picture and of insensitivity towards the Royal Family. In fact Queen Alexandra had asked for the photograph to be given to the Mirror because it was her favourite newspaper. 2. In 1936 we were the only newspaper gutsy enough to reveal the true relationship between King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson. Other newspapers colluded with a government cover-up, denying ordinary people knowledge of the crisis facing their monarchy. The Daily Mirror, however, broke the most sensational royal stories of the century - publishing a front page picture of Mrs Simpson. It also backed the King against the government and church.

Only one newspaper had a photo of a tearful Margaret Thatcher leaving Downing Street for the last time as Prime Minister. The photographers lining the street put down their cameras and applauded as she drove past. Only the Mirror's Ken Lennox kept working to secure a historic shot, published on November 29, 1990. 7. On November 19, 1999, we revealed how Cherie Blair was expecting her fourth child at the age of 45. 8. After a riot broke out at Dartmoor Prison in October, 1932, we hired an aeroplane to get exclusive aerial and internal shots. The Mirror's coverage of the riot, which ended when wardens opened fire on inmates and injured between 60 and 70 prisoners, was one of the earliest examples of the paper's hungry determination always to be first with the story. 10. We were with Iraqi war victim Ali Abbas as he had two prosthetic arms fitted on October 13 of this year. The brave 12-year-old lost his arms in a missile struck his home near Baghdad, which killed 16 members of his family. 11. On June 27, 1955, The Mirror ran a shock issue on The Robot Revolution which explained how a new industrial revolution was coming which would change life at home, in the office and in the factory. Every forecast came true - except that everyone would have much more leisure time and machines did all the work. 12. A Mirror photographer descended 650ft into Mount Vesuvius to get the first ever pictures taken from inside a volcano in June, 1912. 14.

Our snapper hired a French racing driver to drive non-stop through Spain and France to Calais, where a boat was waiting to rush the pictures to England. 16. Our serialisation of Paul Burrell's book, A Royal Duty, was the most talked-about scoop of this year. The former Royal butler revealed last month how Princess Diana predicted she would die in a car crash just 10 months before it happened.

Alastair Campbell, who became Mr Blair's Downing Street spokesman. 21. In 1912 we ran a series of exclusive reports from Captain Robert Falcon Scott as he and his team battled to reach the South Pole.

It was 13 months before their deaths were discovered. 22. On October 3, 1994, we revealed how Royal love rat James Hewitt had written a book - Princess In Love - to cash in on his relationship with Princess Diana. 23. When a major earthquake struck Japan, the Mirror's Far East Correspondent, who was in Shanghai, flew 750 miles to Japan to photograph the disaster. The pictures were then shipped to Vancouver from where they were flown through Seattle and Chicago to Cleveland. Here the plane developed engine trouble and the pictures were transferred to an express train heading for New York where they were collected by a Mirror reporter. He caught a liner to France from where he flew to London, all in September, 1923. 24. The horror of unexploded mines was revealed in our report on the tragic death of 10-year-old Qwadrat in an Afghan hospital. He died shortly after picking up a mine near his home in February, 2002. 27. We were the first newspaper to show a photograph of a "tank", on November 23, 1917. The paper paid pounds 1,000 to the Canadian Record Office for the photos - almost pounds 70,000 in today's money. The cash went to war charities. 28. Mirror photographer Tom Grant may have just abandoned a sinking ship, but that didn't stop him taking some astonishing pictures.

He broke his silence in March, 1998, to speak of his guilt at surviving the accident that killed her. 32. We broke a world record by hiring a pilot to fly photographs to London of the Belgrade wedding of King Alexander of Yugoslavia and Princess Marie of Romania. A photo of the wedding appeared on the front page in June 1922 under the headline: Pictures Brought 1,150 miles by Air Across Europe through Thunderstorms and Fog". 33. Four days after 9/11, we revealed that New York firefighter, Mike Kehoe, who was poignantly captured on camera fearlessly heading into the burningWorld Trade Center, was still alive. 34. We were the only English newspaper to reveal that the British Army were being accused of `massacre' on Bloody Sunday after a demonstration in Northern Ireland erupted into violence in 1972. 35. We exposed the true story behind the extraordinary saga of American drama student Joyce McKinney in 1977. She kidnapped ex-boyfriend Kirk Anderson, chained him to a bad and, he claimed, forced him to have sex. We went after Joyce, who pretended to be demure and chaste, and revealed she was a former prostitute. 36. Pictures of a burka-clad woman being executed in an Afghanistan football stadium shocked the world, yet nobody knew her identity. On June 19, 2002, we exclusively revealed the woman was Zarmina, a 35-year-old who was killed after being accused of killing her husband. 37. Crooked Tory MP Jonathan Aitken grew to fear us after we revealed he had lied to his own family to cover his shady business dealings on November 2, 1994. The Treasury Chief Secretary was later jailed for perjury. 38. On December 24, 1997, we revealed how Jack Straw `s son, Will, had sold cannabis to a Mirror reporter. 39.

It was the final resting place for more than 500 unidentified people, stacked on top of each other in a hastily-arranged morgue STUNTS 40. On January 1, 1973, Britain became a member of the Common Market and the Mirror was edited from Paris for the day. 41. We sent then PM John Major into such a fury that he kidney-punched Mirror reporter Graham Brough - despite the presence of TV cameras. We'd been taunting him with a plug - after his entire Budget was leaked to the Mirror in November 1996. 42. In 1905 we launched Captain Frass, the Mirror's mystery man. He wandered around the country and anyone who spotted him was awarded pounds 50. 43. On July 27, 1999, we reunited Posh and Becks with the18th century thrones on which they sat during their wedding day. We bought the antique chairs and asked the readers what to do with them. Over 70 per cent said they should be handed back to the Beckhams. 44. To mark the Queen's Silver Jubilee celebrations in 1977, we chartered Concorde for a day for readers . The world-famous aircraft carried 80 readers and a group of staff to Washington DC and back the same day. The first, and only, supersonic away day. One of the passengers on board was Richard Branson. 45. Mirror in Alberta, Canada was named after us in 1911 by British emigres who went across the Atlantic in search of work. The Canadian Government advertised in the Daily Mirror for workers to go to Canada to help work on the railroads. 47. In 1977 we arranging for the Loch Ness monster to make an appearance to coincide with the Queen's Silver Jubilee. 48. Reporter Alastair Campbell, who later become press chief at Downing Street, persuaded a Devon family to live without television for a week to see how it affected their lives in 1984. 49. We embarassed the spotlight-seeking celebrities who will turn up for anything by inviting them to the hoax opening of London restaurant, "The Paper Bag" on September 13, 1996. MILESTONES 50. We capped an astonishing year by winning four major gongs at the British Press Awards in March 2003. We walked off with Reporter of the Year, Scoop of the Year and Reporting Team of the Year honours and the Hugh Cudlipp award for excellence in tabloid journalism. And all that on top of four other honours won at the What The Papers' Say Awards. 51. Our front page showing a First World War soldier lying asleep in the snow praised our forces. The headline for the picture, published on December 7, 1914, is "WHAT CHRISTMAS MEANS TO OUR BRAVE TROOPS AT THE FRONT". 52. When Charles married Diana, the Archbishop of Canterbury started his sermon with the words: "This is the stuff of which fairy tales are made" - exactly what the Mirror said in its editorial on that morning of July 29, 1981. 53. A cartoon on the government's decision to raise the price of petrol showed a torpedoed sailor with an oil-smeared face lying on a raft. The message was "Don't waste petrol. It costs lives." Prime Minister Winston Churchill believed the 1942 sketch suggested that the sailor's life had been put at stake to enhance the profits of the and considered closing us down. 54. On December 22, 2001, we won Newspaper of the Year in the biggest year for news of modern times. 55.

That is why I have come to Paris to edit the paper from the city that is today the world's capital." 60. Andy Capp was introduced to the world on August 5, 1957. To begin with, the comic strip only appeared in our Northern editions but proved such a hit was distributed throughout the country. Created by former postal worker Reg Smythe, the comic strip was soon syndicated all over the world. 61. We spoke for the entire nation when we urged the Queen to address the nation after the death of Diana. After we ran the front-page headline "YOUR PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING - SPEAK TO US MA'AM", on September 4, 1997, the Queen addressed the country on a TV broadcast and announced the Buckingham Palace Union Flag would be lowered to half mast. 62. An historic blow for Press freedom was struck when lying supermodel Naomi Campbell lost her Appeal Court privacy action against the Daily Mirror in October last year. The 31-year-old was left with a pounds 750,000 legal bill after three judges overturned the pounds 3,500 damages previously awarded to her. Her complaint followed a Mirror story in February last year which revealed she was a drug addict and had been lying in press and TV interviews about her problem. 63.

It was the first time this has been done in England, and the Mirror had invented the technology. 80. The Mirror gave the full tabloid treatment to the royal wedding of the future King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, mother to Queen Elizabeth II, in April 1923. It was the first time that page upon page of photographs, reports, comment and debate on every aspect of the marriage. It was a rare moment of colour to brighten up the gloom of the post-war years. 82. In 1964, the Mirror topped 5,000,000 circulation and became the biggest- selling newspaper on earth. 83.

It ran a vociferous campaign into the issue which dominated the Board of Trade inquiry into the disaster. 87.

Her letter ended with the promise - I shall vote for him. With so many men abroad, The Mirror took up the theme and turned to women voters: "you know what the fighting man wants. You know which party is likely to give him what he wants. You know the only way to make his future safe. Go then and do your duty. Vote for him." 89. Philip Zec's famous VE Day cartoon of a bloodied and bandaged soldier thrusting a victory laurel wreath forward and exclaiming: "Here you are!

One iconic photograph published on March 26, 1968 forced the the Canadian government to stop killing seal pups.

Wilson survived, King was sacked. 97.

The Mirror helped to catch one of Britain's most notorious killers, the chilling Dr Crippen after the headless body of his wife was found in the coal cellar at their home.

We proved pigs could fly in 1909 when the paper persuaded aviator Colonel Moore-Brabazon to take a porker for a short trip in his flying machine. 57. We had the guts to say what the entire British public was thinking as Princess Margaret agonised on how to choose between the divorced Group Captain Peter Townshend or follow the church's urging and put duty before love. Our 1955 headline read: "COME ON MARGARET! Please make up your mind!" She decided to choose duty. 65. In 1963, the first Mirror dinghies went on display at the Boat Show.

The championship has been awarded every four years since the inaugural tournament in 1930, except in 1942 and 1946 when it was not held because of the Second World War. The current champions are Spain, who won the 2010 tournament in South Africa. The current format of the tournament involves 32 teams competing for the title at venues within the host nation(s) over a period of about a month; this phase is often called the World Cup Finals. A qualification phase, which currently takes place over the preceding three years, is used to determine which teams qualify for the tournament together with the host nation(s). The 19 World Cup tournaments have been won by eight different national teams. Brazil have won five times, and they are the only team to have played in every tournament. The other World Cup winners are Italy, with four titles; West Germany, with three titles; Argentina and inaugural winners Uruguay, with two titles each; and England, France, and Spain, with one title each. The World Cup is among the world's most widely viewed sporting events; an estimated 715.1 million people watched the final match of the 2006 FIFA World Cup held in Germany.[1] The next three World Cups will be hosted by Brazil in 2014, Russia in 2018, and Qatar in 2022.

He was FIFA's longest serving president, having served for 33 years. He also served as the president of the French Football Federation from 1919 to 1946. He was born in Theuley, France. On Rimet's initiative, the first FIFA World Cup was held in 1930. The Jules Rimet Trophy was named in his honour. He also founded one of France's oldest teams, Red Star Saint-Ouen. Rimet died at Suresnes in France in 1956, two days after his 83rd birthday. In 2003 he was posthumously made a member of the FIFA Order of Merit. FIFA World Cup Trophy Awarded for Winning the FIFA World Cup Presented by FIFA First awarded 1930 (Jules Rimet Trophy) 1974 (Current) Currently held by Spain Official website FIFA.com The World Cup is a gold trophy that is awarded to the winners of the FIFA World Cup. Since the advent of the World Cup in 1930, two trophies have represented victory: the Jules Rimet Trophy from 1930 to 1970, and the FIFA World Cup Trophy from 1974 to the present day. The trophy, originally named Victory, but later renamed in honour of former FIFA president Jules Rimet, was made of gold plated sterling silver and lapis lazuli and depicted Nike, the Greek goddess of victory. Brazil won the trophy outright in 1970, prompting the commissioning of a replacement. The Jules Rimet Trophy was stolen in 1983 and never recovered. The subsequent trophy, called "FIFA World Cup Trophy", was introduced in 1974. Made of 18 carat gold with a malachite base, it depicts two human figures holding up the Earth. The current holder of the trophy is Spain, winner of the 2010 World Cup. Replica of the Jules Rimet Trophy awarded to winners Uruguay in 1930 The Jules Rimet Trophy was the original prize for winning the Football World Cup. Originally called "Victory", but generally known simply as the World Cup or Coupe du Monde, it was officially renamed in 1946 to honour the FIFA President Jules Rimet who in 1929 passed a vote to initiate the competition. Designed by Abel Lafleur and made of gold plated sterling silver on a white/yellow marble base. Since 1958 this base has been replaced with a high base made of lapis lazuli, it stood 35 centimetres (14 in) high and weighed 3.8 kilograms (8.4 lb).[1] It comprised an decagonal cup, supported by a winged figure representing Nike, the ancient Greek goddess of victory. The Jules Rimet Trophy was taken to Uruguay for the first FIFA World Cup aboard the Conte Verde, which set sail from Villefranche-sur-Mer, just south of Nice, on 21 June 1930. This was the same ship that carried Jules Rimet and the footballers representing France, Romania and Belgium who were participating in the tournament that year. The first team to be awarded the trophy was Uruguay, the winners of the 1930 World Cup. During World War II, the trophy was held by 1938 winners Italy. Ottorino Barassi, the Italian vice-president of FIFA and president of FIGC, secretly transported the trophy from a bank in Rome and hid it in a shoe-box under his bed to prevent the Nazis from taking it.[2] On 20 March 1966, four months before the 1966 FIFA World Cup in England, the trophy was stolen during a public exhibition at Westminster Central Hall.[3] The trophy was found just seven days later wrapped in newspaper at the bottom of a suburban garden hedge in Upper Norwood, South London, by a dog named Pickles.[4] As a security measure, The Football Association secretly manufactured a replica of the trophy for use in the post-match celebrations. The replica was also used on subsequent occasions until 1970. The replica was sold at an auction in 1997 for £254,500, when it was purchased by FIFA. The high auction price, several times the reserve price of £20,000-£30,000, led to speculation that the auctioned trophy was not a replica. Subsequent testing by FIFA confirmed the auctioned trophy was indeed a replica.[5] Subsequent to the auction, FIFA arranged for the replica to be displayed at the English National Football Museum in Preston. The Brazilian team won the tournament for the third time in 1970, allowing them to keep the real trophy in perpetuity, as had been stipulated by Jules Rimet in 1930.[6] It was put on display at the Brazilian Football Confederation headquarters in Rio de Janeiro in a cabinet with a front of bullet-proof glass. On 19 December 1983, the wooden rear of the cabinet was pried open with a crowbar and the cup was stolen again.[7] Four men were tried and convicted in absentia for the crime.[citation needed] The trophy has never been recovered. The Confederation commissioned a replica of their own, made by Eastman Kodak, using 1.8 kg (3.97 lb) of gold. This replica was presented to the Brazilian president in 1984 FIFA World Cup Trophy on a German stamp A replacement trophy was commissioned by FIFA for the 1974 World Cup. Fifty-three submissions were received from sculptors in seven countries.[9] Italian artist Silvio Gazzaniga was awarded the commission. The trophy stands 36.5 centimetres (14.4 inches) tall and is made of 5 kg (11 lb) of 18 carat (75%) gold with a base (13 centimetres [5.1 inches] in diameter) containing two layers of malachite. It has been asserted by Martyn Poliakoff that the trophy is hollow; if, as is claimed, it were solid, the trophy would weigh 70–80 kg and would be too heavy to lift.[10][11] Produced by Bertoni, Milano, it weighs 6.175 kg (13.6 lb) in total and depicts two human figures holding up the Earth. Gazzaniga described the trophy thus, "The lines spring out from the base, rising in spirals, stretching out to receive the world. From the remarkable dynamic tensions of the compact body of the sculpture rise the figures of two athletes at the stirring moment of victory."[9] It was first presented at the 1974 FIFA World Cup, to West German captain Franz Beckenbauer.[9] The trophy has the visible engravement "FIFA World Cup" in outpouring letters at its base. The name of the country whose national team wins each tournament is engraved in the bottom side of the trophy, and therefore is not visible when the trophy is standing upright. The text states the year in figures and the name of the winning nation in its national language,[12] for example "— 1974 Deutschland", "— 1994 Brasil" and - "2010 España" . As of 2010, ten winners have been engraved on the base. It is not known whether FIFA will retire the trophy after all of the name plaques at the base are filled in; this will not occur until after the 2038 World Cup at the earliest. FIFA's regulations now state that the trophy, unlike its predecessor, cannot be won outright: the winners of the tournament receive a replica which is gold plated rather than solid gold.[9] FIFA World Cup Tournaments Uruguay 1930 · Italy 1934 · France 1938 · Brazil 1950 · Switzerland 1954 · Sweden 1958 · Chile 1962 · England 1966 · Mexico 1970 · West Germany 1974 · Argentina 1978 · Spain 1982 · Mexico 1986 · Italy 1990 · United States 1994 · France 1998 · Korea/Japan 2002 · Germany 2006 · South Africa 2010 · Brazil 2014 · Russia 2018 · Qatar 2022 England Most Capped Players # Name Career caps Goals 1 Peter Shilton 1970–1990 125 0 2 David Beckham* 1996– 115 17 3 Bobby Moore 1962–1973 108 2 4 Bobby Charlton 1958–1970 106 49 5 Billy Wright 1946–1959 105 3 6 Bryan Robson 1980–1991 90 26 7 Steven Gerrard* 2000– 89 19 = Michael Owen* 1998– 89 40 = Ashley Cole* 2001– 89 0 10 Frank Lampard* 1999– 86 22 = Kenny Sansom 1979–1988 86 1 12 Gary Neville 1995–2007 85 0 13 Ray Wilkins 1976–1986 84 3 14 Rio Ferdinand* 1997– 81 3 15 Gary Lineker 1984–1992 80 48 16 John Barnes 1983–1995 79 11 17 Stuart Pearce 1987–1999 78 5 18 Terry Butcher 1980–1990 77 3 19 Tom Finney 1946–1958 76 30 20 David Seaman 1988–2002 75 0 21 Gordon Banks 1963–1972 73 0 = Sol Campbell* 1996– 73 1 23 Alan Ball 1965–1975 72 8 24 Wayne Rooney* 2003– 70 26 25 John Terry* 2003– 68 6 26 Martin Peters 1966–1974 67 20 27 Tony Adams 1987–2000 66 5 = Paul Scholes 1997–2004 66 14 29 Dave Watson 1974–1982 65 4 30 Ray Wilson 1960–1968 63 0 = Kevin Keegan 1972–1982 63 21 = Alan Shearer 1992–2000 63 30 33 Emlyn Hughes 1969–1980 62 1 = Chris Waddle 1985–1991 62 6 = David Platt 1989–1996 62 27 = Emile Heskey 1999–2010 62 7 37 Ray Clemence 1972–1983 61 0 38 Peter Beardsley 1986–1996 59 9 = Des Walker 1988–1993 59 0 = Phil Neville* 1996– 59 0 41 Jimmy Greaves 1959–1967 57 44 = Paul Gascoigne 1988–1998 57 10 = Gareth Southgate 1995–2004 57 2 44 Johnny Haynes 1954–1962 56 18 = Joe Cole* 2001– 56 10 46 Stanley Matthews 1934–1957 54 11 47 Glenn Hoddle 1979–1988 53 8 = Paul Ince 1992–2000 53 2 = David James* 1997– 53 0 50 Trevor Francis 1977–1986 52 12 51 Teddy Sheringham 1993–2002 51 11 52 Phil Neal 1976–1983 50 5 FourFourTwo's 100 Best Current Players In The World 1.

It is the ninth largest island in the world, the largest European island and the largest of the British Isles. With a population of about 62 million people in mid-2010, it is the third most populous island in the world, after Java (Indonesia) and Honshū (Japan). It is surrounded by over 1,000 smaller islands and islets. The island of Ireland lies to its west. Politically, Great Britain also refers to the island itself together with a number of surrounding islands, which constitute the territory of England, Scotland and Wales.[7][3][8][9][10][11] All of the island is territory of the sovereign state of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and most of the United Kingdom's territory is in Great Britain. Most of England, Scotland, and Wales are on the island of Great Britain, as are their respective capital cities: London, Edinburgh, and Cardiff. The Kingdom of Great Britain resulted from the political union of the kingdoms of England and Scotland with the Acts of Union 1707 on 1 May 1707 under Queen Anne. In 1801, under a new Act of Union, this kingdom merged with the Kingdom of Ireland to create the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. After the Irish War of Independence (1919–1921) most of Ireland seceded from the Union, which then became the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

In the case of the West Midlands, for example, the largest city, Birmingham did expand massively and is now considered to include areas that were formerly independent towns, such as Sutton Coldfield and Aston. However, here it stopped, with the Black Country and Wolverhampton retaining strong identities. There are also various places where whilst not actually running into each other, the amount of development in a large area is substantial. Heavily built up areas of this type include : West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire, which are all heavily built up but not entirely devoid of countryside (both are metropolitan counties). The area consisting of Greater Manchester, Merseyside and parts of Cheshire (mainly Halton (borough) and Warrington) is heavily built up and considered by some to be a conurbation[11][12] The London Commuter Belt consisting of Greater London and large densely populated parts of the home counties is heavily built up and is considered one of the world's largest cities. Cardiff/Newport, consisting of the cities of Cardiff and Newport, Cwmbran, much of the eastern South Wales Valleys with towns such as Risca, Pontypool and Caerphilly and part of the Vale of Glamorgan including Penarth and Barry.[4] The Nottingham-Derby Metropolitan area which mainly consists of three large conurbations, the Nottingham Urban Area, the Derby Urban Area and the Mansfield Urban Area
