World Cup winner Nobby Styles has died at the age of 78 after a long illness, his family has said.
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.
In a statement issued by his family said:
“The family kindly asks you to remain confidential in this sad time.”
Styles has been battling Alzheimer’s disease for several years, and in a 2017 interview, his son, Rob, said: “She is OK. We were told it was in the final stages, but you just do not know how long it will last.
