ManUtd and England national team legend Nobby Stiles died after big-period fighting with diseases.

After long treatment for prostate cancer and progressive dementia, ex-midfielder Nobby Styles passed away this Friday, October 30, 2020.

Another legend of English football Geoff Hurst said: “Hugely sad to hear Nobby has passed away. We were playing together way back for the U17s, U23s, and of course, for England, in fact, it was my first cap when Nobby scored, I think he was wearing No. 9! Great character, and the heart and soul of the team, he will be sorely missed”.

Also ex-Manchester United player Gary Lineker pays tribute on Twitter:

He was called the “Toothless Tiger”, one of England’s 1966 World Cup winning heroes and a European Cup winner with Manchester United in 1968.
