10. Peter Shilton – 1982, 86, 90
For a long time ‘Shilts’ was the record holder for caps gained over a long and illustrious career that spanned from the mid-60s to the late 90s. He kept the number one spot warm for three tournaments, and surely would have featured in more had the country made it to the top stage in the 1970s. Though he will always be remembered as the man beaten by the ‘Hand of God’ his overall contribution to the cause is highly commendable and he played a key role in England’s most exciting showing since ’66.
