April 14 (Bloomberg) -- Former England striker Trevor Francis is “recovering well” after suffering a heart attack yesterday, his former club Birmingham said on its website.

Francis, 57, underwent surgery at Heartland Hospital in Birmingham and should be able to return home within the next week, the club said.

Francis became Britain’s first 1 million-pound ($1.6 million) player when he joined Nottingham Forest from Birmingham in 1979. He scored the goal in a 1-0 win over Malmo in the European Cup final in his first season with Forest.

Francis played 52 times for England, including at the 1982 World Cup, scoring 12 times. He also managed Birmingham and Crystal Palace, along with player-manager spells at Queens Park Rangers and Sheffield Wednesday.
