West Germany at the 1966 World Cup - Original Photos

Football gold dropped through my letterbox this weekend. I’d spotted some original photographs taken at the 1966 World Cup up for sale on a well known auction site so being a bit of nostalgia nerd I just had to have them. Here’s a selection for your viewing pleasure.

The bottom photo shows West German fans cheering on their team during the Group 2 game against Argentina at Villa Park. The game, watched by 51000 ended 0-0. 

The bottom photo is a shot of a British Army marching band providing pre-match entertainment prior to the quarter-final tie between West Germany and Uruguay at Sheffield Wednesday’s Hillsborough ground. The two middle photos are action shots from the game itself, which was watched by a crowd of 34000 who saw the Germans beat Uruguay 4-0.
