I READ in one of today’s national newpapers a list, including small photos, of England’s 1966 World Cup winning team.

I knew every player by name and face even after 55 years. It was like reading a “Roll of Honour". The names just rolled off the tongue, never to be forgotten.

Then this thought came to me... will the name of today’s 2021 European team be remembered in 2076?

I doubt it. I can’t even remember them now.

Another thought, these great players of that 1966 team earned far less in a year than today's players earn in a week. How times have changed.
