Although based on Preston at the time, my railway job at the time carried "all stations" travel facilities so got to see most of the North West group games.
Fortunate to see Pele, Eusebio, Colunna, Yashin, Torres play, three of them twice.
Semi final at Wembley v Portugal and Bobby Charlton's thunderous shot -was able to reminisce with him about that 25 years later at a football quiz night.
On to the final, fans on the pitch at our end as Geoff Hurst scored the foothills goal, the unbelievable chants for "Ramsey" at the end - hope it ends well for Southgate this evening.....
Linesman Tofiq Bahramov, who confirmed England's third goal and became world renowned for the decision, I never expected to see again, but he was appointed to referee one of our European games at the Baseball Ground in the 70s.
