This Is What Every England Football Player And Fan Is Dreaming Of Right Now

Published on 21 June, 2014 at 2:00 am By

With England at the brink of elimination from the 2014 FIFA World Cup following their defeat at the hands of Italy and Uruguay, perhaps this is the right time to revisit the old (and lost) glory of the Three Lions. These pictures from the Time archives show what it meant for England when it won the World Cup in 1966. In case, in case England scrapes through the group of death, this should be their inspiration. I am sure the entire England football squad, its players and its fans are dreaming of this right now.
