Jimmy Armfield Remembered at England Fixture

Minute's Applause Held In Memory of Armfield, Cyrille Regis and Davide Astori

28 March 2018

Jimmy Armfield was one of three footballers remembered prior to England's 1-1 draw with Italy last night.

A minute's applause was held prior to kick-off at Wembley Stadium in tribute to Blackpool's record appearance holder, as well as Cyrille Regis and Davide Astori. 

Armfield was capped 43 times for England and captained his country on 15 occasions, while Regis represented the Three Lions on five occasions.

Davide Astori was an Italian international and team-mate of many of those who featured for Italy last night, having passed away recently at the age of 31.
