Germans: Stay & we'll accept 1966.
GERMAN tabloid Bild yesterday offered to finally accept England's 1966 World Cup win as one of 11 jokey "bribes" to keep Britain in the EU.
In a front-page plea on the eve of the referendum, the country's best-selling newspaper said it would also start reserving sun loungers for Brits on holiday using its own towels.
Under a headline of "Dear Brits", the paper listed 11 special promises if Britain agreed not to walk out on Europe.
Top billing was finally accepting World Cup hero Geoff Hurst's disputed Wembley goal against Germany in 1966, which Germans insist never actually crossed the goal line.
Bild also joked Germany would willingly supply the baddie for every James Bond film and introduce EU laws to ban continental-style heads on pints of lager.
The paper also revealed it put a PS10,000 bet on a Remain result - with a promise to spend the winnings on free beer in a London pub.
