England hero George Cohen was 26 when he lifted the famed trophy.
George Cohen’s England career lasted just a little over three years, but his 37 appearances for the Three Lions came during the country’s most successful period.
Having made his debut against Uruguay in 1964, Cohen became England Manager Alf Ramsey’s first choice right-back in the build-up to the 1966 World Cup.
He retained his position for the tournament on home soil and was an ever-present throughout, putting in impressive displays down the wing that allowed Ramsey to play his revolutionary style involving no real wide players.
He was 26
when he lifted the Jules Rimet trophy at Wembley and only went on to play a further eight times for his country – his final appearance coming against Northern Ireland in November 1967.
