Name a player who played for your national team over 20 years ago?

Country - England

Player - Gary Linekar (yes I know that he was still playing for us during Italia 90, so that is not over 20 years but he is one of my all time favourites:)

He was top scorer at Mexico '86 and won the Golden Boot.

What a player, what a man, he even speaks a bit of Japanese:DD

Others I could mention are Glenn Hoddle and Chris Waddle. If you didn't know better, you would say that I was a closet Spurs fan!!

Thank you

Update:

UWS - yes you're right, he was in the '66 world cup winning team:D

Update 2:

Jaye - any relation to Wayne?!!!

Update 3:

Kitty - yes he counts:)

    My early boyhood hero 'Supermac' Malcolm MacDonald. He still has the goalscoring record for England with 5 goals in one game.

    He would have had more caps for England, but he was a cocky so and so (he turned up in a pink Rolls Royce when he signed for Newcastle), and the England heirarchy didn't like him. But he did the business alright, scoring a hat-trick on his home debut against Liverpool.

    Aren't all great players cocky, big-headed and outspoken? Cantona anyone?
