Bobby Moore is a defender for Classic England. He captained West Ham United for ten years and most significantly was the captain of England during the 1966 World Cup, which England won. He captained his country 90 times and held the record number of caps for an outfield player (108) until David Beckham won his 109th.
Known for his elegant style of play, precise timing of tackles and ability to read the game he was nicknamed 'The Emperor'. His perfectly timed tackle on Jairzinho during the England v. Brazil game in the 1970 World Cup is still regarded by many as the greatest tackle of all time in a World Cup. After his death from bowel cancer in 1993, both Pele and Franz Beckenbauer called him the greatest defender of all time.
