Ray With The Jules Rimet Trophy at Goodison
Ray With The Jules Rimet Trophy at Goodison

On this very famous day back in 1966 England defeated West Germany to win the Football World Cup for the first and only time in their history.

Goodison as we know staged one of the Semi Finals, but the day was extra special for Evertonians as Ray Wilson became the first and only Blue to win the World Cup as a Blues player.

Ray was left back on the day and his mistake early doors gave the Germans their opener. He though never put a foot wrong after that, and we all know what happened next.

In his Blues career Ray played 153 times, and he also made 63 England appearances in total. We signed him from Huddersfield in 1963 and his five year love affair with the Blues ended in 1968 when he moved on to Oldham Athletic.

He never won the title with the Blues but he did win the other Cup Final in 1966 at Wembley when Everton defeated Sheffield Wednesday 3-2 to lift the FA Cup.
