Tommy Docherty (Preston North End And Scotland) I played for Scotland when Duncan Edwards made his debut for England as an eighteen year old at Wembley Stadium in 1955. England won 7- 2 and Dennis Wilshaw of the Wolves scored 4 goals – but it was Duncan Edwards who was the star of the show. Duncan was the complete footballer and there is no doubt in my mind that he would have become the greatest player ever. Not just the best England, but the best in the world. I am very proud to be supporting the Duncan Edwards 60th Anniversary Tribute.
Tony Kay (Everton and England) Duncan Edwards would have become the greatest player this country has ever seen. Such a tragic loss and it still saddens me today. Rest peacefully.
