Gordon Banks played for Leicester City
Gordon Banks, OBE (born 30 December 1937) is a retired English footballer, elected in a poll by the IFFHS as the second best goalkeeper of the 20th Century – after Lev Yashin (1st) and before Dino Zoff (3rd).
Banks was a member of the England national team that won the 1966 World Cup. Banks was named by PelÃ© as one of the top 125 greatest living footballers in March 2004.
His consistent performances in goal led to the re-wording of a common English idiom used in everyday speech to “Safe as the Banks of England.”
In 1964, Banks had some domestic success when Leicester beat Stoke City 4-3 in the League Cup final over two legs, though they lost the trophy a year later after a 3-2 defeat by Chelsea on aggregate in the final.
