England fantasized about "bringing football home" at the World Cup in Qatar, but heartbreak in the 2022 World Cup quarter-finals against France meant that the legendary 1966 team remained the only one to bring the world title to the kingdom.
Today (Friday) England said goodbye to one of the symbols of this team, George Cohen, who passed away at the age of 83.
Cohen was the right back in that team and did not miss a single minute during the home tournament, which as mentioned ended with a 2:4 in the final at Wembley against West Germany after extension.
From that legendary squad only two players remain alive - the great star Bobby Charlton who suffers from dementia and the hero of the final Jeff Hurst, who scored a hat trick against the Germans.
Hurst was the only player to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final until Kylian Mbappe joined that list this week.
Jeff Hearst said goodbye
Cohen who made 37 appearances in the national uniform played throughout his career for one team - Fulham - and in media made 459 appearances over 13 years.
With the London team, Cohen failed to win a title, so the World Cup remains the only title in his career.
