Peters scored the World Cup Final goal that Geoff Hurst didn't.

It wasn't that long ago he was down my local pub signing posters and shirts etc he looked just the same then as he did in 66 - slim, neatly dressed and clean cut. Came across as a decent bloke.

Can't say off the top of my head, but there can't be that many left from the 66 team now - Charlton Bros, Geoff Hurst...I'd have to look the others up. George Cohen?

Anyway. RIP

There wasn't the media-stoked hate back then - though there was some modest crowing when Scotland beat England 2-1(?) a few weeks later.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.
