Gordon Banks Retro Shirt – A Look at 2 Retro England Football Shirts Worn by the Best Ever Keeper


#1 Football Merchandise & Souvenirs Store

Gordon Banks is generally considered to be not only the greatest ever English goalkeeper, but also one of the greatest goalkeepers who ever lived. It is not surprising then that the Gordon Banks retro shirt is one of the most popular retro England football shirts currently available.

Such was Banks’ ability between the goal-posts during his career that a popular English phrase was changed in his honor, to “Safe as the Banks of England.” He was also voted as the second best keeper of all time in a poll carried out by the International Federation of Football History & Statistics. So if you are looking at retro England football shirts to cheer on the boys in South Africa this year, then you should definitely consider getting a Gordon Banks retro shirt.

Below we look at two great retro England football shirts worn by Banks in consecutive World Cups.

Vintage goalkeeper shirt from 1966

Banks had only let in one goal during the World Cup before the final, which was actually a penalty taken by Eusebio, in the semi finals against Portugal. He then let in a further two goals during England’s historic 4-2 win against West Germany, in the final. This particular Gordon Banks retro shirt is the yellow England goalkeeper jersey worn by Banks during the tournament and really is a wonderful example of retro England football shirts from this era.

Retro goalkeeper shirt from 1970

Although Gordon Banks is probably best remembered for being part of the only England side to have won a World Cup trophy, he is also well known for a save he made in the World Cup finals in Mexico, some four years later. England were fancied to do well in the 1970 World Cup and they were drawn to play the other pre-tournament favourite, Brazil, in an early group match. This was the Brazil side, captained by Pele, who went onto win the World Cup that year.

During the match, Gordon Banks made a save from Pele, which is considered by many pundits to be the greatest ever save. Indeed, Pele himself said that it was the best act of goal-keeping he had ever witnessed. The goalkeeper shirt that he wore to make that save during the 1970 World Cup is a great looking Gordon Banks retro shirt, which is based around a deep blue jersey that has the three lions in a large white shield. These retro England football shirts really are a timeless classic, which just look great with a pair of jeans.
