Former Ipswich and England footballer Paul Mariner has died at the age of 68.

Paying tribute to the striker, who scored 13 times for his country, the England Twitter account posted: "We're sad to have learned that Paul Mariner, who made 35 appearances for the #ThreeLions, has passed away at the age of 68.

"Mariner represented England between 1977 and 1985, scoring 13 goals.

Always enjoyed watching Paul play. Far too young to go.

RIP  Paul.

Quite a gent by all accounts.

Excellent for Ipswich. My abiding memory of him for England though is constantly getting up off the groundLaugh

Football has lost a good one.

Sad to hear about this today, Paul was a very good centre forward who possessed a lot more skill than most of the big lumps at the time, part of Ipswichs' best ever team, him and Trevor Whymark had a great partnership, the generation after the World Cup winners starting to go now, RIP Paul.

Started out at Chorley. We've got 1 of his shirts from Spain '82 in the club house. He still used to come on when he was in UK, will be sadly missed.

Someone mentioned on another thread yesterday about England beating France in WC '82... I could remember Bryan Robson first minute goal.. watched the highlights on youtube yesterday.. Mariner got the third..

I hadn't thought about Paul Mariner for years,.... until yesterday.  Then heard the sad news today .. strange coincidence?

I well remember big "Jaws", Tam Forsyth, having both him and Mick Channon on toast at Hampden one sunny Saturday.
Channon, in particular, ssshat his-self!

One of the greatest days in recent memory, as a Wolves fan, was when Steve Bull came on as a sub for England at Hampden ... it was also a sunny Saturday,,

.. don't forget we were a third division side having just got promoted from the 4th. To have a Wolves player in the England squad was a miracle to us... anyway, Bully smashed it in with more or less his first touch in the game... Wolverhampton erupted... a great day..

Yes I thought about him yesterday too! Was thinkin* about the ‘82 World Cup and how we got eliminated without losing a game. Keegan and Brooking were injured so only gi5 26 minutes. We beat a French team that included Platini, Alain Giresse and Jean Tigana. They also had the great Marius Tresor.

Mariner indeed got the third.

I was at that match.  Couldn't believe how good Bull was. Industrious, aggressive, skilled, impossible to keep on a leish.  Yep - smashing player.  Should have had loads more caps in my view.
