Fifty five years ago today, fifteen days after he was injured in the Munich Air Disaster, Duncan Edwards died in hospital.
That a footballer was ‘The greatest’ has been said of many but when it is the likes of Bobby Charlton, Tommy Docherty, Terry Venables and others of their ilk saying it then maybe mortals should believe!
That he didn’t live to lead England to victory in 1966 is the greatest tragedy in English football.
DUNCAN EDWARDS, “The light still shines”
Born Dudley, England. 1st October 1936.
Died Munich, West Germany. 21st October 1958.
