Personal Quote:

[on his famous save from a Pelé header in the 1970 World Cup] They won't remember me for winning the World Cup. It will be for that save.


He was a FIFA World Cup winner with England in 1966. He made 73 appearances for England as a goalkeeper between 1963 and 1972, which included appearances at two FIFA World Cups (1966 and 1970). See more »
