Sir Geoff Hurst

Television and Media

In demand as a guest for both radio and television programmes, Sir Geoff's opinion on developments within football, today's star players and key matches throughout the season are sometimes contentious but always both insightful and welcome.

Sir Geoff's knowledge of his sport and the context he offers through his vast experience as a player, manager and fan offers listeners and viewers a formidable combination. And he doesn't hold back either!

As well as the World Cup, Sir Geoff is often involved with the FA Cup, the Carling Cup and those critical matches during what has become known as the business end of the season.

Sir Geoff Hurst

Sir Geoff Hurst MBE secured a unique place in the history of football in 1966 when he became the first and, for more than 56 years, the only player to score a hat-trick in a World Cup Final.

Sir Geoff says that he 'had a great run', nevertheless he remains the only player to score a 'perfect' hat-trick and the only to be on the World Cup winning team.

Knighted in 1998 and inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame in 2004, Sir Geoff holds a special place in the hearts of football fans across the world and, perhaps surprisingly, this includes Germany!
