World Cup moments: Hurst hits the bar

BBC Sport looks back to the moment when Sir Geoff Hurst scored his second goal against Germany in the 1966 World Cup final.

His shot struck the crossbar and bounced down on the line.

Referee Gottfried Dienst had to consult his linesman Tofik Bakhramov to see whether the ball had crossed the line, but Bakhramov said it had and England were awarded the goal.
