The debate over Sir Geoff Hurst's controversial goal during the 4-2 World Cup final victory over West Germany in 1966 still hasn't been settled, but a new conspiracy has now arisen - did West Germany cheat?

German sport has been subsequently rocked by allegations made that West Germany cheated after benefiting from illegal substances. 

A report entitled 'Doping in Germany from 1950 to today’, which was leaked to the German media over the weekend, revealed the country ran a systematic drug programme that covered a wide range of sports. 

The reported suggested that thee of the West German players in the side, which lost to England in ‘66, tested positive for banned stimulant ephedrine.

It also revealed that the World Cup winning side of 1954 was given injections, which were claimed to be Vitamin C, which in fact contained methamphetamine called Pervition.

Methamphetamine, more commonly known as Crystal-Meth, has effects of feeling very up, exhilarated, alert and awake.

The full report has yet to be released due to concerns over legal issues.
