Two World Cup Events
On this day in 1966, The England Squad won The World Cup, in extra time, at Wembley Stadium by four goals to two. Geoff Hurst made his hat-trick by scoring his third goal in the last seconds of extra time.
This match was the first World Cup to be televised in a live broadcast.
Also on this day
In 1930, Uruguay defeated Argentina winning the first ever World Cup competition which was hosted in Uruguay from the thirteenth to the thirtieth of July. The Final was played in the Estadio Centenario, Montevideo with a final score of 4-2 to Uruguay.
Today Is Also Cheesecake Day
Definitely one of my favourite desserts or cake to have with an afternoon coffee. There is a massive variety of cake flavours available.
Vanilla, Chocolate, Passionfruit, Strawberry, Almond Amaretto, Chocolate Chip.
Chocmint, Apple Butter Swirl, Candied Sweet Potato with White Chocolate.
Caramelised Apple, Blackberries, Blueberries etc. There are at least 80 recipes for cheescake that I have seen. It is so versatile and always delicious.
I am off to have some now. It is, after all, afternoon teatime somewhere in the World.
