Captain Fantastic will not be forgotten
Moore's England cap against France in 1962 and the statue erected in his memory outside Wembley
Moore played in the 1970 World Cup under the shadow of accusations he had stolen a bracelet from a Colombian hotel in the build-up to the tournament but he was later cleared.

The West Ham stalwart reached his century of caps in a 5-0 win over Scotland on Valentine's Day 1973. His 108th, and final, international appearance came in a 1-0 friendly defeat by Italy that November.

Moore died of bowel cancer at the age of 51 on 24 February 1993.

A statue in his memory was unveiled outside Wembley in 2007, positioned so it gazes down Olympic Way at arriving fans.
