World Cup At Goodison
In 1966 football really did come home to England.
The eighth World Cup competition was held on these shores and, as one of the leading venues in the country, Goodison Park was selected to host five of the matches.
The Merseyside public had the privilege of watching some of the finest football played in the whole tournament with the great Pele taking part in the only competitive games he ever played in England.
And inspired by the legendary Eusebio, Portugal staged one of the greatest comebacks of all time to defeat North Korea.
Goodison Park was the venue for the first goal scored in the tournament and no other stadium witnessed more goals throughout the finals.
