Good episode? Give it some love!
The ball rolled past the gap between him and Gordon Banks and into the back of the net. The Germans were one goal up.

Jack Charlton, Sue Lawley's castaway, recalls the match which was to bring him to his knees in relief and joy as England went on to win the 1966 World Cup - just one of the crowning moments of a career that could so easily have ended down the pit, except for his talent with the ball. Nicknamed The Boss because of his straight talking, Jack describes his relationship with his brother 'Our Kid' Bobby Charlton and his success as manager of Ireland.

Jack died in July 2020, at the age of 85.
