England do have a history of playing in white at the World Cup semi-final stage: they did so in 1966 and in 1990.

England wore red shirts because Sweden were designated the home team.

They have not been beaten in the last 17 games that they've worn red.

One of the enduring images of the celebrations in Wembley immediately after the game was the picture of the captain Bobby Moore holding the Jules Rimet Trophy aloft, on the shoulders of Geoff Hurst and Ray Wilson, together with Martin Peters.

The 13-foot (4 m)-high bronze piece was sculpted by Philip Jackson and weighed 4 tonnes.

The bronze statue of the 1966 World Cup Final located near West Ham United Football Club's former Boleyn Ground (Upton Park) stadium in the London Borough of Newham, England
