If you require a wonderful sporting celebrity speaker for your after-dinner event who has:- humor, wit, and charm, then retired International goalkeeper Shilton is the person to have. He can talk about the inside view on the world of football at domestic and international level. He is England’s most capped player with 125 appearances under his belt and was the model of professionalism in his time with 11 different clubs and several England managers.
1962 was the year Shilton started training with his hometown club, Leicester City. It was only three short years later, Peter made his first-team debut, and from then onwards he never looked back. Amongst his honors and achievements are the facts he was one of the youngest ever players in an FA Cup final at age 19, kept a record of ten clean sheets for England, and played in more than 1,000 competitive football matches. Of course, the most famous moment of his career (in world football?) was the ‘Hand of God’ moment when Argentina’s Diego Maradona punched the ball past Shilton to score in a 1986 World Cup quarter-final which England eventually lost 2-1. It wasn’t until the semi-final of Italia ’90 when Peter finally retired, after losing out on penalties to Germany.
