Top 10 England Goalkeepers

Football fans, who's the best goalkeeper England have ever given the gloves to? Hard to judge and compare every player during the 150-years history of the Football Association, but still worth having a discussion on.

The Top Ten

1 Gordon Banks

There is no question he was the greatest, I remember seeing him save a penalty from Geoff Hurst in the old League Cup, which I think was at Upton Park, the old West Ham United ground, and Hurst didn't often miss from the spot. - E - Boyo...

Best goalkeeper without a doubt

Part of the famous 1966 World Cup winning team, one of the legends of the game and with over 70 caps, Banks will also be remembered for "that save" from Pele's header against Brazil in 1970. - LeoLyons

The save in 1970 world cup against Pele was incredible and will never be beaten for positioning, reflex, and pure goalkeeping instinct a awesome keeper who always performed to the highest level and at a time when fantastic keepers (Bonetti, Stepney, West, sprigett ) where thick on the ground. Banks greatest keeper of all time in the world!

2 Peter Shilton

Most capped Englishman (125 caps) who played for England for an incredible 20 years from 1970 until his retirement after the 1990 World Cup. A truly world class goalie. - LeoLyons

3 David Seaman

Safe Hands Seaman, an iconic 'keeper for club and country, who was at the very top of his game during the 1990's. - LeoLyons

4 Ray Clemence

Currently part of England's coaching staff, Ray Clemence was a terrific 'keeper who would have had many more caps than his 61 had it not been for him being in the same generation as Peter Shilton, the pair between them played 186 times for the Three Lions. Deservedly. - LeoLyons

5 Joe Hart Charles Joseph John "Joe" Hart is an English professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Premier League club Manchester City and the England national team.

England's current number one is the real deal. - LeoLyons

6 Chris Woods

Fine 'keeper who occupied the goal during the late 1980's and early 90's. - LeoLyons

7 Nigel Martyn

If ever there was a 'keeper who on club form deserved more international accolades, it's probably this man, the former Leeds, Everton and Crystal Palace stopper was top class. - LeoLyons

I may be a bit biased as he’s my father but his stats are comparable to Seaman’s who was playing for a team with a much better defense at the time

8 Jordan Pickford

'did good in world cup 2018 and will do good in euros hopefully'

A really good champion

Really good at handling

Showed his potential this World Cup, saves many and was truly an asset to the English team and it’s fans

9 Paul Robinson
10 Ben Foster

The Contenders

11 David James
12 Tim Flowers
