A clear offence. Both were partially clothed. In his hurry to drive away, Shilton crashed into a lamppost.
He knew what he had done. Everybody did — apart from the referee and two linesmen. He scored a brilliant second almost immediately, but we were still reeling from what had happened minutes earlier.
It was a great goal but we were in no doubt — without the first goal he would not have scored the second.
Nobody is asking you to lie. He had the run on me but that can happen. By the time of his retirement, he was the fifth oldest player ever to have played in the Football League or Premier League.
Shilton recovered from financial troubles caused by business decisions and gambling,  and became a prolific after-dinner speaker. Despite playing at a lower level, he impressed England manager Alf Ramsey sufficiently to give him his debut against East Germany in November England won 3—1.
Little more than six months later, Leicester were promoted back to the First Division. His second England cap came in a goalless draw against Wales at Wembley; and his first competitive match for his country was his third appearance as England drew 1—1 with Switzerland in a qualifying game for the European Championships.
At this stage, Banks was still England's first choice keeper, but the remaining brace of back-ups from the World Cup , Peter Bonetti and Alex Stepney , had been cast aside by Ramsey so Shilton could begin to regard himself as his country's number two goalkeeper at the age of His fourth and fifth England caps came towards the end of , before a tragic incident suddenly saw Shilton propelled into the limelight as England's number one keeper.
In October , Gordon Banks was involved in a car crash which resulted in the loss of the sight in one eye and thus ended his career.
Liverpool goalkeeper Ray Clemence was called up to make his debut a month later for England's opening qualifier for the World Cup , a 1—0 win over Wales.
Shilton ended up with over caps compared to Clemence's Against Scotland, Shilton made a right handed save diving to his left from Kenny Dalglish's shot that Shilton considered among his best saves.
This went badly for England, with Shilton unable to stop both goals in a 2—0 defeat and therefore making victory in the final qualifier, against the same opposition at Wembley four months later, a necessity if England were to make the finals.
By now he and Ray Clemence were battling to be regarded as England's top goalkeeper, and each was given their share of caps.
In , however, Clemence seemed to be getting the edge, winning eight of the nine caps available under Don Revie , though England failed to reach the European Championships during this period.
Ron Greenwood started to select Shilton as regularly as Clemence, eventually reaching the stage where he made a point of alternating them, seemingly unable to choose.
This indecision attracted some adverse comment, with some commentators questioning Greenwood's ability to manage at the highest level.
Shilton then featured heavily as England qualified for the European Championships in Italy — their first tournament for a decade.
Shilton had won his 30th England cap in a 2—0 win over Spain in March ; his 31st would not come until the European Championships themselves.
It was a 1—0 defeat to Italy , which proved crucial as England failed to get through to the knockout phase. In the midst of Shilton's issues, he had the matter of the World Cup to consider.
Shilton had played in half of the qualifying games — wins over Norway , and Switzerland , a goalless draw against Romania , and a vital 1—0 win over Hungary.
The latter was the last game of the campaign, and England had to win to qualify for the finals in Spain, leading to a potential repeat of the events against Poland in The result went England's way this time and they qualified for their first World Cup for a dozen years, with Shilton appearing in the finals for the first time at the comparatively mature age of Clemence had played in the friendlies building up to the competition, but it was Shilton who was selected for the opening group game against France in Bilbao.
England won 3—1 and Shilton stayed in goal for the two remaining group games. That was sufficient to advance to the second phase.
With Bobby Robson now running the England team, Shilton's international career flourished, playing in Robson's first ten matches and even captaining the side in seven of them in the absence of Bryan Robson and Ray Wilkins.
One game, a 2—0 win over Scotland, earned Shilton his 50th cap. Clemence returned for a qualifier for the European Championships against Luxembourg , but this game, Clemence's 61st for his country, also proved to be his last.
England failed to qualify for the European Championships. However, he was now the established first pick goalkeeper for his country, and would remain so through to the end of his international career.
Almost half his international caps 61 out of were earned after his 35th birthday. It was before another goalkeeper was selected for an England game, when Robson could give a debut to the Manchester United goalkeeper Gary Bailey in a relatively unimportant friendly match.
Shilton was still the keeper for the qualifying campaign for the World Cup , which thus far had seen three wins from three matches and no goals conceded.
A 70th cap came Shilton's way in a 1—0 defeat against Scotland at Hampden Park ; he later saved a penalty from Andy Brehme as England beat West Germany 3—0 in a tour match in Mexico, a year before England were hoping to return there for the World Cup.
England accomplished going through the whole qualifying campaign undefeated. By the time they played Mexico in an acclimatisation match prior to the competition, Shilton was 80 games into his England career, having beaten Banks' record for a goalkeeper of 73 caps the previous year against Turkey.
At the World Cup itself, England started slowly, losing the opening group match to Portugal and then drawing against outsiders Morocco , during which time Robson was led off injured and Wilkins was sent off.
In their absences, Shilton was handed the captaincy as England found their form to defeat Poland 3—0 in their final group game — Gary Lineker scored them all — and progress to the second round.
There they met Paraguay and though Shilton did have to make one fingertip save during the first half, England were rarely troubled. Lineker scored twice and Peter Beardsley once as England went through 3—0 and into a quarter final meeting with Argentina , a match which again would ultimately form part of the legend of Shilton's whole career.
Argentina captain Diego Maradona had been the man of the tournament thus far, but in a tight first half England managed to keep his creativity reasonably at bay.
But early in the second half, Maradona changed the game, much to Shilton's anger. Maradona began an attack which seemingly broke down on the edge of the England box as Steve Hodge got a foot to the ball.
The ball was skewed back towards the penalty area and Maradona, continuing the run from his initial pass, went after it as Shilton came out to punch the ball clear.
Maradona managed to punch the ball over Shilton and into the net. Shilton and his teammates signalled that Maradona had used his hand — a foul for any player except a goalkeeper — but the Tunisian referee Ali Bin Nasser allowed the goal.
A photograph subsequently showed Maradona outjumping Shilton and his fist clearly making contact with the ball as Shilton was still midway through his own stretch, arm extended having not anticipated Maradona's action.
Maradona later said the goal was scored by the Hand of God. Nasser never refereed at such a high level again, having missed such a blatant infringement.
Shortly afterwards, Maradona scored a legitimate individual goal , taking on almost the whole England defence and Shilton before shooting into an empty net.
Lineker pulled one back and nearly equalised in the closing seconds, but England were out. Brian Clough and Peter Taylor managed the team and the club went onto win the League in his first season of Peter playing with them.
Two successive European cups followed, with League Cup success as well! During all this time Peter played for England in a 20 year duration, and remains Englands most capped male Footballer with games.
He played in 3 World Cups starting with Spain in , the highlight being in getting to the semi finals. Peter shares a joint world record with Fabien Barthez of 10 goals conceded in 17 games!
As he ran away to celebrate he even looked back twice, as if waiting for the referee's whistle. He knew what he had done. Everybody did - apart from the referee and two linesmen.
I don't care what anybody says, it won the game for Argentina
