Gordon Banks, one of the greatest goalkeepers the world has ever seen, has died aged 81. He was a key member of Englandís World Cup-winning team in 1966. He famously missed the 1970 quarter-final against West Germany, which England lost 3-2, because of food poisoning. One his best saves came from a Pele shot earlier in that tournament.

RIP Gordon Banks, an absolute legend to the game. Banks is the fourth player of the England team that started the 1966 World Cup final to have died, after Bobby Moore, Ray Wilson and Alan Ball. That save from Pele is probably the greatest save I've seen.

I'm not quite old enough to have seen him playing for England but I know how good he was. I've seen that save from Pele many times. Think how good it would look if they had slowmo cameras from all angles like they do now. RIP Gordon Banks.

RIP Gordon, I guess he's one of those people you just expected to live forever but he's certainly left a legacy.

He came 25th in our Buzzjack Ultimate Footballer last year and this was Pete put:


QUOTE
Scraping into the second set of results is our second goalie Gordon Banks, who celebrated his 80th birthday last year. He was part of the World Cup winning squad back in 1966, after winning the League Cup with Leicester in 1975. He then moved to Stoke, competing in the next World Cup where he made a save to prevent a Pele goal, and won the League Cup with his team in 1972. Unfortunately his career was abruptly ended by a car crash which resulted in him losing an eye, although his legacy is clearly remembered to this day.


He certainly will be clearly remembered for generations to come.

The two legends, Pele and Gordon Banks
