Sir Robert "Bobby" Charlton CBE (born 11 October 1937 in Ashington,
Northumberland) is an English former professional football player
who won the World Cup and was named the European Footballer of the
Year in 1966. He played almost all of his club football at
Manchester United, where he became renowned for his attacking
instincts from midfield and his ferocious long-range shot. His
elder brother Jack, who was also in the World Cup-winning team, was
a former defender for Leeds United and coach. He began to play for
United's first team in 1956, and over the next two seasons gained a
regular place in the team, during which time he survived the Munich
air disaster of 1958. After helping United to win the Football
League in 1965, he won a World Cup medal with England in 1966 and
another Football League title with United the following year. In
1968, he captained the Manchester United team that won the European
Cup, scoring two goals in the final to help his team be the first
English side to win the competition. He has scored more goals for
England and United than any other player.
