• The ‘toothless Tiger’ was a skilful and creative midfielder
• Stiles won the European Cup with Manchester United in 1968
Nobby Stiles, one of England’s 1966 World Cup winning heroes, has died aged 78 after a sustained period with prostate cancer and advanced dementia.
A European Cup winner with Manchester United in 1968, Stiles will be forever remembered for his victory jig at Wembley two years earlier, clutching the Jules Rimet trophy in one hand, the “Toothless Tiger’s” false teeth in the other, after England had beaten West Germany in the World Cup final.
