Germany's 1966 World Cup final goalkeeper Hans Tilkowski has died at the age of 84.
The former Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper was in goal in the Wembley final, which hosts England won 4-2.
Ex-England forward Geoff Hurst, whose hat trick in that match remains the only treble in World Cup final history, posted a touching tribute to Tilkowski on social media.
"Very sad to receive a call earlier to let me know that Germany's goalkeeper from 66 World Cup, Hans Tilkowski, has died," Hurst's tweet read.
"Terrific player for his club, Borussia Dortmund, and country and a very fine man, I very much enjoyed the time we spent together over the years."
Hurt's second goal, which had put England 3-2 ahead in extra-time, has been the subject of much controversy since, with many questioning whether the ball had crossed the line -- and Tilkowski having always maintained it should not have stood.
"Most people told me the Wembley goal made me world famous, but I say that I would have rather won the World Cup," Tilkowski said in an interview with Dortmund's fanzine schwatzgelb.de in 2016.
Tilkowski won 39 caps for Germany and was also a 1966 European Cup Winners' Cup winner with Borussia Dortmund.
The 2-1 victory over Bill Shankly's Liverpool ensured Dortmund became the first German side to win a European trophy.
Tilkowski's death comes just two weeks after that of former England player Martin Peters, who scored in the 1966 World Cup final.
