Amid the official opening of Swindon Supermarine Football Club’s SwinDome multi-purpose facility, Our Flashback series takes us to pre 2018 World Cup where Sir Geoff Hurst gives his thoughts of Gareth Southgate’s men having a fantastic chance of glory in Russia. Someone get him down the bookies.
Hurst is the only player to have ever scored a hat-trick in a World Cup Final but said he will gladly share that honour with Harry Kane if it means England are crowned champions.
The 76-year-old, who is a McDonalds ambassador, also praised Supermarine’s SwinDome saying it is a fantastic facility and very different to what was on offer during his childhood days when they used pavements and roads for football pitches.
