Description

Peter Shilton is a legend in football. One of the greatest goalkeepers to play in this country, his 25 clean sheets in one season at Nottingham Forest, and 67 throughout a lengthy international career are landmarks in the modern game. From the 15-year-old who joined Leicester City, to the winner of two European Cups and a League Championship medal, he has played in numerous World Cup campaigns (both successful and unsuccessful), and was the keeper involved with Maradona's 'Hand of God' incident. Even aged 40, Shilton was still playing in the First Division while representing England at Italia '90. This is the full story of one of football's greatest goalkeepers. In addition to detailing the highs and lows of his 31-year career, Shilton is searingly honest about the gambling and related problems which culminated in near bankruptcy, in this most compelling and revealing autobiography.show more
