World Cup Winner Dies

Alan Ball, the youngest member of England's 1966 World Cup squad - our one and only World Cup victory - died today aged 61.

Ball, who won man of the match in the '66 final, suffered a heart attack outside his home after tackling a bonfire that had gone out of control.

He's now the second member of England's greatest ever squad to die, after Bobby Moore died in 1993.

England players will be wearing black armbands as a mark of respect in their first game at the new Wembley Stadium against Brazil on June 1st.
