Former England and Everton left-back Ray Wilson has died aged 83.

Wilson continued as England's first-choice left-back through the qualification process for the 1968 European Championships with the Three Lions, eventually going out in the semi-finals of the tournament while his 63rd and final England cap came in the third-place play-off against the USSR.

Wilson was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2004 and passed away in Huddersfield on Tuesday.

Football Association chairman Greg Clarke said in a statement: "We are extremely saddened to hear the news about Ray Wilson".

"The thoughts of everyone at Huddersfield Town are with Ray's wife Pat, his sons Russ and Neil and the rest of his family and friends at this hard time".

"Huddersfield Town is devastated to learn of the passing of World Cup victor Ramon "Ray" Wilson MBE at the age of 83", the Terriers said in a statement.

Wilson played nearly 300 matches for Huddersfield having been signed aged 17-year-old when he was working on the railways - it was thanks to Bill Shankly that he made the move to left-back from left-half in the 1956/57 campaign.

Alongside several of his World Cup winning teammates, he was given an MBE for services to football in 2000 and was inducted into English Football's Hall of Fame in 2008.

Huddersfield paid a fulsome tribute to him on their website.

Wilson was just one of England's 1966 World Cup squad who had Alzheimer's.

Following more struggles with injury Wilson was granted a free transfer and joined Oldham Athletic in 1969, a move which meant he ultimately missed out on Everton's First Division title win of 1970.

Ray made 266 appearances for Huddersfield Town over 12 years between 1952 and 1964.

"Ray Wilson led the onset of a new breed of full-backs". He was a world-class player'.

"He was the best of his kind at the time".
