The funeral of Liverpool legend and England World Cup winner Roger Hunt is being held at Liverpool Cathedral on Thursday.

Liverpool followed that up with the league title in 1964, the club's first ever FA Cup in 1965 and then another league title in 1966, before Hunt went on to star at the World Cup where he scored three goals en route to England's victory.

Not only that, he was also a World Cup winner in 1966, too.

Affectionately christened 'Sir Roger' by Liverpool supporters, Hunt scored 285 goals in 492 appearances for the Reds between 1958 and 1969, and was the club's all-time top goalscorer until Ian Rush surpassed his record.

Following the news of his death, England goalscoring great Gary Lineker tweeted: "Saddened to hear that yet another of the heroes of '66 has left us.

Roger Hunt was a truly great striker for both Liverpool and his country.

“Roger Hunt comes second to no-one in his importance in the history of Liverpool FC, that much is clear," said Klopp.
