Alan Ball member of England team that won the World Cup in 1966 dies

Alan Ball, the youngest member of the England team that won the World Cup in 1966, has died at age 61.

Ball apparently died of a heart attack during the night, said his son, Jimmy.

Hampshire Police said Ball was found collapsed outside his home after attempting to fight a fire in his garden.

The midfielder won 72 caps in a 10-year England career.

He began his playing career at Blackpool and went on to Everton, Arsenal and Southampton, and later played in the United States.

Ball was the second member of the 1966 team to die. The captain, Bobby Moore, died of cancer in 1993.
