Stanley Harding Mortensen was the first player to score for England in a FIFA World Cup qualifier and the first English player to score in a World Cup qualifier. Born in South Shields, Mortenson fought in 1939 as a teenage wireless operator and overcame injuries – his RAF bomber crashed, leaving him the only survivor – to sign up for Blackpool in 1941. While stationed at RAF Lossiemouth in Scotland, he played a few unofficial games for Aberdeen and was a guest at Arsenal with an impressive goalscoring record. He scored dozens of goals during the war and then made strange history by switching to Wales as a substitute against England on 25 September 1943. Wales’ Ivor Powell was injured and had to leave the field, with Mortensen taking his place as England’s substitute. Wales lost 8-3, and Stanley Matthews later wrote: “None of the 80,000 spectators knew Mortensen would change. A quarter of an hour later, the players in red returned to the pitch and the crowd erupted in cheers as they – unaware of the seriousness of Powell’s injury – assumed the injured Wales flanker half was returning. Even when “Powell” into the left inside, no doubt, onlookers, what is unusual, because the players were injured and often need to change the team, and even some English players don’t know Mr. Mortenson on the other side of the play, and is based in the grandstand at the top of the Wembley football writers know until after half-time change.” You could put a Stanley Harding Mortensen statue on a football field. Aongking can also customize any sculpture you want.
