Former France captain Armand Penverne has died aged 85.
Brittany-born Penverne was part of a great Stade de Reims Champagne side that dominated French football, winning four domestic titles and two French Cups. He also played in the 1959 European Champion Clubs' Cup final defeat by Real Madrid CF.
In the colours of France, the midfielder collected 39 caps between 1952 and 1959. Seven of those were as captain, including a famous 6-3 victory against West Germany that enabled Les Bleus to claim third place at the 1958 FIFA World Cup.
Penverne also turned out for Red Star and Limoges Foot 87 and coached Olympique de Marseille.
