Gordon’s miraculous save from Pele (Edson Arantes do Nascimento) in the 1970 World Cup Finals in Mexico has won him a place in the history of the game. It is still referred to as, ‘the greatest save of all time’. Many England fans still argue their team would have won the Jules Rimet trophy that Summer, had Gordon not missed the vital quarter-final against West Germany, due to a stomach bug. The 1966 World Cup Final at Wembley holds far happier memories for Banksy. England’s historic 4-2 win over West Germany was a magnificent triumph he shared with team-mates including Bobby Moore, Bobby Charlton, George Cohen and hat-trick hero Geoff Hurst. He won a total of 73 caps for his country. Although Gordon is known to soccer fans all around the world, he did not ever play for one of Britain’s glamour clubs, preferring to give loyal and outstanding service to both Stoke City and Leicester City. Gordon is now a fine after dinner speaker and enjoys making live appearances at a wide range of events.
