43 days to go

Former England full-back Jimmy Armfield, who played in the 1962 FIFA World Cup™ but missed out in 1966 through injury, won 43 caps for his country between 1959 and 1966.

Armfield made his international debut against Brazil in May 1959 in front of a reported crowd of over 130,000 at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro.

His performances at the 1962 FIFA World Cup in Chile earned him plenty of plaudits and in total in his one-club career he made more than 550 appearances for Blackpool over a 17-year period.

He later went on to manage Bolton and Leeds, losing the 1975 European Cup final 2-0 to Bayern Munich during his spell in charge of the Yorkshire club. Armfield now works as a media pundit for the BBC.
