(FOOTBALL) Peter Shilton - Nottingham Forest 1979 Euro Cup

Peter Shilton
Nottingham Forest 1979 Euro Cup Team

*Attending Sunday only

The veteran goalkeeper signed for Forest from Stoke in 1977 and his safe hands ensured Forest's two European Cup victories.
Peter Shilton made 202 appearances for the Reds until his departure in 1981 and was still regarded as the best keeper in England in 1990 when he donned the No.1 jersey for England in the World Cup at the age of 41.
One of the game's all-time great goalkeepers, he went on to top 1,000 League appearances in a glittering career with a number of clubs - as well as England. It was with Forest that he enjoyed the greatest club success, being the last line of defence in the 1978 Championship-winning side and, of course, the European exploits that followed. He would have won many more England caps but for having to share the role with Liverpool's Ray Clemence for so long.
He was awarded the MBE in 1986 and later the CBE. He went into management at Plymouth in 1992 until 1995 and finished his playing career at Leyton Orient in 1997.
