Roger Hunt, the world champion with England in 1966 and the second historical scorer for Liverpool FC, died today, Tuesday, at the age of 83.

Hunt played in the 1966 World Cup, and won the title at Wembley Stadium, and scored 3 goals in the tournament in 6 matches.

Hunt is one of the most prominent scorers in the history of Liverpool, as he scored 244 goals in the “Reds” shirt in the English Premier League.

In total, Hunt played 492 games with the “Reds”, scoring 285 goals, and is the second historical scorer for the ancient club, behind Ian Rush, who scored 346 goals.

“We are sorry for the passing of legendary player Roger Hunt,” Liverpool said in a statement. “Everyone stands with his family and friends at this difficult time.”

Hunt was the only player from Liverpool to play in the World Cup final against Germany in 1966, and crowned with Liverpool the League title twice and the FA Cup in the 11 years he spent with him.
