Keith Kettleborough: Midfielder whose artistry and industriousness put him on the fringes of the 1966 England football squad
Saturday 07 November 2009
With his balding head, pallid features and scuttling gait, Keith Kettleborough didn't cut a glamorous figure on the football pitch, even during his prime with Sheffield United in the first half of the 1960s. No matter: the slim Yorkshireman was one of the game's true craftsmen, a subtly constructive midfield general who brought to his work an appealing cocktail of artistry and industry which, during mid-decade as plans were being laid to capture the World Cup, prompted the England manager Alf Ramsey to call him into his training squad.

Leroy Lita returned to Reading, where he spent four seasons before joining Middlesbrough, and rekindled Boro's hopes of a swift return to the Premiership by scoring the second goal in a 2-0 win. After 12 minutes Sean St Ledger headed in Adam Johnson's corner, but Lita's 55th-minute solo effort was more spectacular. Gathering a pass on halfway, he outpaced Darren O'Dea and Ivar Ingimarsson and ran on to beat Adam Federici in the Reading goal. Boro moved up to third.

Lothar Matthaus was in his majestic prime when he arrived at Villa Park with Internazionale of Milan for a UEFA Cup encounter in October 1990. But anyone hoping to witness the dynamic German midfielder, one of the most lauded and decorated footballers the game has ever known, at his devastating best, was in for a sorry letdown; and the man to blame was Paul Birch.
