Jimmy Armfield
Jimmy Armfield
Armfield is a much-respected commentator
In a playing career spanning 20 years, Jimmy Armfield represented just two sides - Blackpool and England.

He made his greatest impact on the international stage during the 1962 World Cup in Chile, when he was acclaimed as the best right-back in the world.

But the England star was to face severe disappointment four years later.

Having played in the pre-1966 World Cup friendlies, he was sidelined by injury for the tournament itself. George Cohen took his place in the victorious side.

Since retiring in 1971, Armfield has had a successful career as a manager, leading Leeds to a European Cup final, and is now a well-respected commentator for BBC Five Live.

He was awarded an OBE for services to football in 2000.
