Ex-winning defender has passed away

Jimmy Armfield, winner of 1966 World Cup edition in his own country has died today from cancer. The former English defender spent his whole life working in his native land: was faithful as a player for 17 years at Blackpool, later he coached Bolton and Leeds, and after retirement got a job as an advisor for more than 35 years. In some occasions was posing as captain of the national team. He was 82 years old.
