Portugal stunned the world in the World Cup in England in 1966, and was one of the candidates to crown the championship title, after it defeated Hungary, Bulgaria and Brazil with three goals against each of them in the group stage, and defeated North Korea by five to three goals in the quarter-finals.

The England team managed to eliminate it from the semi-finals of the tournament, to compete with the Soviet Union for third place in the World Cup for the first time in its history.

The tie lasted with that result until the 89th minute of the match, before Jose Torres, the star of Benfica and the former Portuguese national team, came and awarded his country the bronze medal for the World Cup for the first time in its history, before the original time of the match ended with a few seconds, with his amazing goal that was dug in the history of Portuguese football.
