England commemorates Banks’ 85th birthday: saving Pele’s header is named “Banks save”

December 30-December 29, local time, Brazil’s “ball king” Pele died at the age of 82. Today, England officials posted a message commemorating the 85th birthday of Gordon Banks, the former England goalkeeper who contributed to the “Banks save” by saving Pele’s header at the 1970 World Cup.
The England official tweeted: “remember Gordon Banks-our World Cup winning goalkeeper-if he is still alive, today is his 85th birthday.”
Banks won the World Cup with England in 1966 and was named goalkeeper of the year by FIFA for six consecutive years from 1966 to 1971. He was diagnosed with cancer in 2015. Banks died in his sleep on February 12, 2019 at the age of 81.
With the death of Pele, the great rivals will meet in the sky.
