1966 World Cup tribute coin for England's last friendly

The kick-off in England's final friendly match before Euro 2016 will be decided by a coin struck by Bobby Moore's widow.

A special £5 coin marking 50 years since the Three Lions' 1966 World Cup win has been made by the Royal Mint.

The late West Ham favourite's widow Stephanie struck the coin in south Wales this week ahead of England's friendly with Portugal on Thursday, where it will take centre stage.

As well as bearing the Three Lions emblem, it also features the Jules Rimet Trophy - which was famously held aloft by Moore after the 4-2 Wembley win over West Germany.

A donation from each coin purchased will be made to the Bobby Moore Fund, which supports Cancer Research's pioneering research into bowel cancer.
