No ordinary Joe!

No ordinary Joe!

On this day in 1934, Villa striker Joe Beresford made his England debut against Czechoslovakia.

The 2-1 defeat in Prague was Beresford’s only England cap, but he did a magnificent job for Villa, scoring 73 goals in 251 games after making his debut in September 1927. He joined Preston in 1935 and played for the Deepdale club against Sunderland in the 1937 FA Cup final.
