GORDON BANKS, ENGLAND
Chesterfield, Leicester, Stoke
Fort Lauderdale Strikers (USA)
1963-72

Record-setting keeper, his play was key to the success of British national team. His records include 73 caps and 23 consecutive internationals as goalkeeper for the British team. A key member of the 1966 World Cup Championship squad known for their defense, he notched seven consecutive shut-outs, a string that was only ended by a penalty shot in the '66 semi-final match against Portugal. The team relied on his skill so much that his early withdraw in the 1970 World Cup Quarterfinal lead to the loss to West Germany.
