For ten years Gordon Banks was widely acknowledged to be the best goalkeeper in the world, and, perhaps, the best there's ever been. Along with players like Bobby Moore, Banks was first on Sir Alf Ramsey's teamsheet - England's number one in both 1966 and 1970. But in his prime, months after being named 1972 Footballer of the Year, it was all cut short when Banks lost an eye in a car crash. He defied medical opinion by fighting his way back onto the football field ending his career playing with other legends like Pele, George Best and Franz Beckenbauer in the fledgeling North American League. This book is the story of a genuine English hero and an account of England's finest footballing years.
