Nobby Stiles: Member of England’s World Cup-winning team dies aged 78

Nobby Stiles, a member of England’s 1966 World Cup-winning team, has died aged 78.

His family said the midfielder passed away after a long illness.

Styles was also part of the Manchester United side which became the first English club to win the European Cup two years later, when they beat Benfica in the final at Wembley.

He was born during a Second World War air raid in Collyhurst, Manchester, in May 1942, agreeing apprentice terms with United in 1959.

The tough-tackling holding midfielder won league titles with the Red Devils in 1965 and 1967, and the European Cup in 1968.
