The 1966 World Cup Final, or England vs West Germany, was a football match which ended the 1966 World Cup. (PROSE: The Rag & Bone Man's Story) It was played at Wembley Stadium on 30 July 1966. (PROSE: Extra Time) Following England's victory, Bobby Moore was presented with the Jules Rimet Trophy by Queen Elizabeth II. (TV: The Lie of the Land, AUDIO: This Sporting Life)

Joseph Galloway, who possessed the Blessing Star, watched the match, and the jewel started to respond to his fervent wish for England's victory over Germany. As he watched the final, the First Doctor, fresh from his victory over WOTAN, found him. The Time Lord had been tracking down the Star so as to tie up loose ends from his last visit to England. To his dismay, he found the Star too late. By then, the Star had started to overload, taking in not just the rag and bones man's wishes, but those of people all over England. The Star allowed England to make a very close shot into the German goal, but no more. It exploded, overwhelmed by the hopes of an entire nation. England went on to win, but without any further help from the Star. (PROSE: The Rag & Bone Man's Story)

England won 4-2 against West Germany, after a hat trick scored by Geoff Hurst. The Ninth Doctor recalled being there, and that one of the goals was because of the linesman. As part of his plan to gradually change history so that humanity would never venture out into space, Igrix changed the result to 5-2 by having the Lend-a-Hand girls give the England team a nutritious meal before the World Cup final to build them up for a greater victory. After the Doctor defeated Igrix' plans, he mentioned that he "oughta fix" the extra goal that was scored. (COMIC: The Love Invasion)

The Eleventh Doctor and his companions Amy Pond and Rory Williams were also at the match on two occasions. (COMIC: They Think It's All Over; PROSE: Extra Time)
