A STUNNING new claim has emerged that will shock the Scottish football community.
England’s 1966 World Cup hat-trick hero Geoff Hurst qualified to wear the dark blue after it emerged he once munched on a Tunnock’s teacake and washed it down with a can of Irn Bru.
Tunnock’s researcher Hamish Campbell MacDonald told Dafty News: “Geoff was in a tea-room just days before the 1966 World Cup where he scoffed a Tunnock’s caramel wafer, a couple of teacakes, and washed it down with a can of Scotland’s other national drink, Irn Bru. This qualified Geoff Hurst under the then FIFA rules.”
Hurst is still the only player to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final and experts say the forward had the energy to achieve maximum athletic prowess because of the Tunnock’s teacakes and Irn Bru.
