Collectors have the chance to buy a piece of football history when the goal line from the 1966 World Cup final is auctioned by King Sturge this month.

 

The Wembley Stadium goal line has been the subject of discussions and debates for decades thanks to England hero Geoff Hurst’s controversial second goal.

 

As every football fan knows, Hurst's shot hit the underside of the crossbar and bounced on the line. The German players claimed the ball didn't actually cross the line but the Swiss ref, Gottfried Dienst, and the Russian linesman Tofik Bakhramov, said "Goal" so it stood.

The Football Association of Thailand (FAT) has changed the national team's home kit colours from all red to yellow shirt and white shorts.

 

FAT secretary-general Ong-art Korsinka said yesterday the FAT had informed Fifa of the change while the all blue away kit remains unchanged.

 

Since October 2007, Thailand has used the yellow shirt which is the colour of the king Bhumibol Adulyadej and has used white shorts and white socks at the first kit for the celebrations on the auspicious occasion of his majesty the king’s 80th Birthday Anniversary on December 5.

 

Red is also an auspicious colour because it is one of the colours in the Thai national flag. However, yellow is more popular because it is the colour of the King who was born on Monday, he said.

 

"Yellow is a lucky colour and it is also the King's colour," Ong-art said.

 

"We performed well last year in yellow shirt and won the SEA Games so we decided to make it our uniform for home games."  Fifa has approved the changed, he said.
