Ian Robert Callaghan MBE (born 10 April 1942, Toxteth, Liverpool) is a retired English footballer who holds the record for most appearances for Liverpool.[1]

Life and playing career[edit]

Callaghan with Liverpool in 1966.

Callaghan played in Liverpool's first ever League Cup final at Wembley, which they lost to Brian Clough's Nottingham Forest after a replay. It was in this game that he received his only booking for the club.[2]

In the 1966 World Cup final only the 11 England players on the pitch at the end of the 4–2 win over West Germany received medals. Following a Football Association-led campaign to persuade FIFA to award medals to all the winners’ squad members, Callaghan was presented with his medal by Gordon Brown at a ceremony at 10 Downing Street on 10 June 2009.[3]
