Gordon Banks' famous save for England

Gordon Banks' famous save for England

He played just under 300 times for Leicester City before moving to Stoke in 1967, where made 194 appearances in six years at the club.

Gordon Bank's family confirmed this morning the 81-year-old passed away in his sleep.

Banks made 510 league appearances for Chesterfield, Leicester and Stoke and won 73 senior global caps.

Four years later, he was a member of the England squad which reached the quarter-finals in Mexico, where he made a legendary save against Brazilian striker Pele in the group stages. Many consider it to be the greatest save of all time.

Demonstrator loses hand at Paris ‘yellow vest’ march
A police source, however, said numbers were higher, with 21,000 demonstrators taking part in rallies outside Paris alone. The yellow vest protests are named after the jackets motorists are obliged to carry in France .

This accident cost him his sight in his right eye, as well his professional career at the age of 34.

"Gordon was a fantastic goalkeeper and I was proud to call him a team-mate", former England teammate Bobby Charlton said on the Manchester United Twitter account.

"The ground was hard so I thought I should get off my line", Banks recalled to the BBC in 2017, "and as I dived I had to anticipate how high it was going to bounce". Obviously we shared that great day in 1966 but it was more than that.

Unfortunately, his top-level career was cut short in 1973 by a vehicle accident the previous year that left him blind in one eye, although he did attempt to play on in the United States, featuring for the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in 1977.
