Pietersen was included in the England squad a few months before the World Cup. Coach Alfred Ramsey’s confidence was as good as ever. Geoff Hearst returned to England after falling behind Helmut Holler in the final against West Germany. In the 76th minute Alan Hearst’s shot from the corner of the ball hit the opponent right in front of Peters. He led England to half-time from 8 yards away. At the last minute Wolfgang Weber returned to equality with the Germans, but Hearst won the English title in extra time.

Martin Peters’ career began in 1959 in West Ham.

Six years later, he was a significant contributor to the team’s Cup Winners’ Cup victory. He has scored 20 goals in 67 matches in the national team jersey. His goal score was 100 for West Ham in 364 games. In 1970, Tottenham Hotspur joined another London club. He also played for a few seasons at Norwich City and Sheffield United.

Hearst is the hero of England’s World Cup win over Peters. A tribute to the long-time teammates at the national team and West Ham, ‘Martin scored a goal in the World Cup final. For a long time, Martin and Bobby Moore played at West Ham. Sleep in peace dear friend. ‘
