QOTD (89) 09/06/2010 [World Cup Countdown-8]

ID the legendary English player, who according to Alf Ramsey and Bobby Charlton, was the the most technically gifted player of his generation and would have surely spearheaded the English attack at the 1966 World Cup, had not fate intervened. Who and why did he not play ?

Ans. The player is Duncan Edwards, legendary Man-Utd player and most famous among the 'Busby Babes'. He was critically injured in the Munich Air Disaster in 1958 and died of kidney failure a few days later

Salute to legends like him, who never got to play at the World Cup, due to one reason or the other-To Di Stefano, Schuster, George Weah, Tessier, Kanchelskis, Kubola, Ryan Giggs, George Best, Cantona, Ian Rush, Mark Hughes, Ginola etc.
