Sir Geoff makes history by scoring the winning goal in the 1966 World Cup Final against West Germany
Sir Geoff, 79, said: “What are our chances? Good.
“We have got a very good team, we’ve been doing very well, well managed, and right from the start I’ve felt we had a good bunch of players, a lot of very good young players.
“I always felt we had a chance and that hasn’t changed. I always felt right from the beginning the team that beat Italy would win it because they are very strong as well.
“I predict it is going to be a very tight game between two fantastic teams.
“I can’t see a a 4-2 scoreline like we saw in 66. That would be a big shock really.

“You can’t see either team conceding that amount of goals. It will be very hard – as it’s proved for the last 55 years – for a player to score three.
“But I’ve had a great record and someone’s got to do it (one day).
“But it’s not about an individual scoring three. It is just about, as it has been right the way through, a great team winning.
