Gordon Banks Signed A3 Print, 1970 England v Brazil World Cup Finals ‘Worlds Greatest Save’
Pelé, and numerous journalists and pundits, would later describe this save as the greatest in the history of the game?Just before the save a split-second incident only allowed Banks time for one conscious thought – that the shot was impossible to catch, and the only way to prevent Pelé from following up on the rebound would be to parry the ball over the bar. The ball bounced two yards in front of the goal-line, Banks managed to make contact with the ball, rolled his hand slightly to angle the ball over the crossbar. Banks landed in the inner netting of the goal, and knew he had saved the ball after seeing Pelé’s reaction. Banks then rose to his feet to defend the corner, and broke into laughter after the following exchange.
“I thought that was a goal.” Pele said
“You and me both.” Banks replied
“You’re getting old, Banksy, you used to hold on to them.” Bobby Moore
