Styles was a huge part of the Three Lions side, winning the tournament in 1966, and in total he scored 28 teams for his country. Stiles, who played as a central defender, also made 311 appearances for Manchester United in 1960-71.
He was part of the team that became the first English club to win the European Cup when they beat Benfica in the final at Wembley in 1968.
Styles continued to play for Middlesbrough from 1971-73 and at Preston North End from 1973-75 before hanging up his boots.
He was in charge of Preston, Vancouver Whitecaps and West Brom.
