INFO:
Givens was a centre forward. He had his best seasons in Queens Park Rangers, where he played from 1972 to 1976, scoring 101 goals in 294 matches. He played also for Manchester United, Luton Town, Birmingham City, Bournemouth, Sheffield United and Neuchâtel Xamax, where he retired in 1987 after six successful seasons with 34 goals in 149 games. He capped 56 times for Ireland, scoring 19 goals. He scored a hat-trick against URSS and even a poker against Turkey.
Givens was considered a complete forward, strong but extremely mobile at the same time. He could use both feet equally well, was a good header, had decent speed and agility, good dribbling and ball possession but also nice passing ability. In fact he often pushed back to the midfield to recover the ball, pass it to a teammate and then run towards the opponents penalty area.
