FOOTBALL LEGENDS: SIR BOBBY CHARLTON DVD: It can be said, without a shadow of a doubt, that Bobby Charlton is one of the best international footballers that the world has ever seen, as well as being one of the most talented English football players of all times. Despite being injured in his debut match for Manchester United against Charlton Athletic in 1956, he made an immediate impact scoring twice. After 758 appearances, Charlton left United in May 1973 with an incredible 249 goals under his belt. As well as holding legendary unbroken records with United, Charlton also holds England s goal scoring record as well, with 106 caps and 49 goals. Charlton was also part of the victorious 1966 World Cup winning England team beating West Germany in the final at Wembley 4 -2. However Charlton s footballing career was very nearly cut short after the Munich air disaster of 1958 (just two weeks before his international debut) Lucky Charlton, who was only 20 at the time, escaped with cuts to his head and severe shock, but not everyone was so lucky. 23 lives were tragically claimed that day including 7 of Charlton s teammates. According to Charlton himself, the crash remains one of the defining moments of his life. (50 min) LITTLE BOOK OF ENGLAND PLAYER BY PLAYER: The England Football Team is the oldest national football team in the world, playing their first official match against Scotland in 1872, resulting in a 0 0 draw. Over the next 140 years, the national side would play more than 900 matches and select nearly 1,200 players to represent their country. Selecting a Top 100 is not an easy task, although there are those who were virtually guaranteed their place, including the seven players to have reached the centurion mark (Billy Wright, Bobby Charlton, Bobby Moore, Peter Shilton, David Beckham, Steven Gerrard and Ashley Cole) or those with phenomenal goalscoring records such as Jimmy Greaves, Michael Owen and Frank Lampard. Here, however, are those that made the grade. Each entry includes date and place of birth, details of their career, who they made their debut against and the total number of appearances (and goals), together with a brief biography. A must have book for any England football fan! (144 pages)
