Geoff Hurst said he had enjoyed a “good run” after France’s Kylian Mbappe became just the second player after the England great to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final.

But his feat was equalled on Sunday when Mbappe’s treble helped France fight back from 2-0 down and then 3-2 behind at the Lusail Stadium as the final finished level at 3-3 after extra time.
