He was taken off in Mexico four years after when you had a two goal lead over Germany and went on to lose the game. Ramsey was a master tactician and outstanding club coach but that were a real mistake on his part that day. Think that game was Charlton's final international appearance although may be incorrect.
Was sorry to learn of news for the passing. Charlton exemplified courage and leadership in what he did and was a true ambassador for the sport both on and off the field. Legend is an overused term maybe, particularly as the game progresses but here at least I think the man in question deserves such accolade.
Reunited with Jackie now, both brothers gave and provided so much for their respective causes. It's a sad day for the sport that we've lost enough individual of such caliber, leadership and all other superlatives you could lend to such a high profile name of the sport. Best to the family, a man of great integral attribute.

Great memory Andy! That it’s the stuff that makes legends immortal. Like many, I grew up with that name. He is and was certainly a deserved Sir. RIP.

One of my boyhood hero’s who I was fortunate to watch play for Manchester United and England many times. Certainly one who will never be forgotten by any football fan of my generation. RIP Sir Bobby, a true football legend for sure.

Agree, They should all be ashamed of themselves today and be made to watch how the real men conducted themselves.
Watching that Bobby Charlton programme last night really did show what a man's game it was back then, players like Duncan Edwards, the Charlton's, Dennis Law, etc etc training in the local park.
Also when Bobby's youngest brother said he had a ticket for the World Cup final but couldn't go because he couldn't afford to get to London, it really did hit home it really was OUR game back then,
If that Munich disaster hadn't happened, Football history could have been so different, Wolves might not have owned the 50s, Duncan Edwards would have become the greatest Club & Country captain of all time,
We will never know,
