What year did England win the FIFA World Cup?
England won their one and only FIFA World cup in 1966, when the World Cup finals were held in England. England beat West Germany 4-2 in the final, with Geoff Hurst scoring a hat-trick and Martin Peters scoring the other goal.
What are your thoughts on this subject?
I was inLondon on that day and the city and people in pubs went wild with celebration. Sadly, in the pub that I was in, near Earls Court, the celebration was interrupted by a German who disliked the celebration, got up to leave, turned in the door, raised his arm and yelled "Heil Hitler". I don't know what happened to him, but he was followed out by a number of locals.

Every English person knows this, whether or not they are interested in football. It is ingrained into our psyche

England won the Jules Rimet Trophy. The first country to win the FIFA World Cup was West Germany in 1974.

Actually we call it soccer in Australia, but are respectful enough to understand what it is almost universally called! Wilson-Smith,

A true world sport, unlike the American ones that just call themselves that.

DannyBoy, I guess you think it's boring because you know nothing about football (and I'm talking proper football, not that garbage that's played in the States). Knows you know how the rest of the world feels when we get bombarded with questions on American TV, American geography, American newspapers and the rest of the American bollocks question that get posted on here

Sergey Boev, Not so - the first World Cup coverage on TV was in 1954 from Switzerland.

Ian Swindale, He wasn't a touch-judge, he was a linesman; he wasn't Russian, he was from Azerbaijan; linesmen can't award goals, the referee awarded it after consulting with him.
