Callaghan played in the group game against France which England won 2-0, but ultimately was left out of the side as it progressed, with Ramsey preferring an innovative system which did not deploy natural wingers of Callaghan's type. The team won the World Cup and became known as the "wingless wonders". Callaghan's England career was almost over at the age of 24.


The rest of the 1960s proved fruitless for Liverpool, and Shankly set about dismantling the team and building a new, younger one. Callaghan, along with team-mates Tommy Smith, Chris Lawler and Emlyn Hughes, would emerge from the cull intact and became an "elder statesman" figure (even in his late 20s) as a vibrant young side developed around him.

With Callaghan in the side, Liverpool reached the FA Cup final in 1971 but lost 2-1 to Arsenal. Two seasons later, they won both the League title and the UEFA Cup, and then in 1974, they won the FA Cup for the second time, destroying Newcastle United 3-0 in the final. Shankly retired afterwards, meaning that Callaghan was the only player to have lasted longer in the first team than the time Shankly spent in charge of it.

At the age of 34, there was no slowing Callaghan down as he featured again in a side which won a League and UEFA Cup double in 1976. The following season, during which he reached the grand footballing age of 35, he was so impressive in Liverpool's march towards an unprecedented treble that he was awarded a fourth and final England cap.

Liverpool won the League again but lost the FA Cup final to Manchester United.

In the autumn of 1978, Callaghan finally left Liverpool after an astounding 843 first team appearances, during which he scored 69 goals. He joined his former Anfield team-mate John Toshack's renaissance at Swansea City, helping them to two consecutive promotions. He also spent some time playing in the USA for Fort Lauderdale, alongside fellow veterans Gordon Banks and George Best and concluded his career at Crewe Alexandra. He retired at the age of 39 in 1981 though it was injury rather than age that finally curtailed his career - he suffered an Achilles tendon problem which forced him to quit. 1978 (MCMLXXVIII) was a common year starting on Sunday (the link is to a full 1978 calendar). ...

Callaghan has kept a low profile since retirement but his name remains in the club's record books for the most first team appearances; the most League appearances and the most European appearances for the club, as well as the distinction to be the only Liverpool player to progress from Second Division championship to European Cup. His appearances record is unlikely to be beaten.
