Hello and welcome to our coverage of the funeral of Liverpool legend Roger Hunt who passed away last month.

The funeral will take place in Liverpool today, with the procession expected to pass Anfield as many Kopites will be able to pay their respects to the club legend.

Hunt, who passed away late last month after a long illness, is the second-highest goalscorer in Liverpool's history having scored 285 goals in 492 appearances during a spell of more than 11 years at the club.

The forward - who was given the nickname 'Sir Roger' by the Kop - was an integral part of the Reds side under Bill Shankly that earned promotion back to the top flight by winning Division Two in 1962.

He would forge a strong partnership with Ian St John, and the duo were both on target when the Reds won their first FA Cup in 1965, Hunt scoring the extra-time opener before St John headed the winner.

Hunt also earned 34 caps for England, scoring 18 times, with the highlight of his international career being the 1966 World Cup during which he scored three times and played up front in the 4-2 final win over West Germany at Wembley.
