On this day - 14 June


West Germany 3-2 England (aet)
World Cup Quarter Final
14 June 1970

Bobby Moore and Geoff Hurst won their 84th and 41st England caps respectively on this day 45 years ago - but it did not turn out to be a happy occasion as England's defence of their World Cup title came to an end in Mexico.

Having defeated Romania and Czechoslovakia to ensure a group stage loss to Brazil counted for little, England took on West Germany in the quarter final stage in a repeat of the 1966 final.

It all appeared to be going swimmingly when Alan Mullery and Martin Peters - by then a Tottenham Hotspur player - put the Three Lions into a 2-0 lead by the 50th minute.

But England were without regular goalkeeper Gordon Banks with a stomach complaint and replacement Peter Bonetti was unable to prevent Franz Beckenbauer and Uwe Seeler from forcing extra time.

Bobby Charlton had been withdrawn with England 2-1 up, and West Germany prevailed in the extra 30 minutes, Gerd Muller's 108th minute goal sending them through to a semi-final with Italy.
