Nobby Stiles –
Footballer, Brit, jack-o-lantern.
May 18, 1942 – October 30, 2020.
Aged 78 years.
Most recognized for: A tenacious defensive midfielder, he played every minute of England’s charge to capturing the FIFA championship in 1966. His infamous victory dance – with the World Cup trophy in one hand and his dentures held aloft in the other – not only celebrated a rare unassisted English defeat of Germany but also served as a unifying moment for the dentally challenged throughout the the world… but mostly the UK.
