To celebrate here’s a great image, taken in 1962 of John Charles who in 1957 when he was transferred from Leeds United to Juventus became the first British footballer to be sold for more than £50000.  (image via interleaning)

Lennart Skoglund

Lennart ‘Nacka’ Skoglund was a born entertainer and is considered one of the greatest Swedish football players of all time. He played as a left winger and was a master of dribbles and turns and once managed to score directly from the corner kick, a moment immortalized with a statue which serves as a gathering point for fans at Nackas birthday each year. He’s still popular in Italy where he played for Inter and Sampdoria.
Towards the end he had developed an alcohol problem and died in his apartment at the age of 45.  A Swedish journalist wrote, “Nacka lived off of applauds, like the comedian lives off of laughter. Nacka managed to make many people very happy. When the laughter dies, the comedian dies. When the cheers died, Nacka died.”
