On this day - 5 July

Legendary West Ham United duo Bobby Moore and Martin Peters were both capped for England on this day in 1966.

Just six days prior to the start of the FIFA World Cup, Sir Alf Ramsey's men jetted off to Chorzow, Poland, for the final of their warm-up fixtures.

Having seen off Denmark 2-0 in Copenhagen two days previously, England showed four changes, with fellow Hammer Geoff Hurst one of those to miss out.

In front of in excess of 70,000 at Stadion Slaski, Liverpool frontman Roger Hunt scored the game's only goal, bagging the winner after just 14 minutes.

Peters, who had only made his international debut a month earlier against Yugoslavia at Wembley, collected just his third cap, while skipper Moore made his 41st outing for the Three Lions.

England would head into their World Cup opener against Uruguay with four friendly wins out of four in the immediate build up to what became, of course, the most glorious of English summers.
