Peter Bonetti died on Sunday at the age of 78 and will be remembered as a fine goalkeeper – one that deserved far more than seven England caps.

The Chelsea great was vying with World Cup-winning keeper Gordon Banks, who features high up this PA news agency list of the country's most capped stoppers.

The Birmingham shot-stopper made his debut against Wales in 1929 and was a mainstay between the sticks until his final match in 1936, which also came against the Welsh. He died in aged 77 in 1984.
Spells at QPR bookended a career that was largely spent at Sheffield Wednesday, where he won all of his caps. Springett was a sub as England won the World Cup and belatedly received a winners medal in 2009. He died in 2015.

His first four caps came at Leeds United, with the rest coming during his time at Tottenham. Made his debut in 2003 on the same day at Wayne Rooney and was first-choice at the World Cup three years later.
Represented Norwich, Rangers and Sheffield Wednesday during his England days, playing under Sir Bobby Robson and Graham Taylor.
No.1 at Euro 2004, brought into the starting line-up after an opening game error by Robert Green at the 2010 World Cup. James won caps while at Liverpool, Aston Villa, West Ham, Manchester City and Portsmouth.
The Liverpool and Tottenham great was an England regular for much of the 1970s and early 1980s, before record-breaking Peter Shilton eventually got the nod.
The only man on this illustrious list to have lifted a major trophy with England. The World Cup winner was one of the greatest, with his remarkable save from Pele regarded by some as the best ever. He died last year.
One of two on 75 caps. The Leeds United fan made his debut as a QPR player in 1988. Kept the sticks at Euro 96. The Arsenal great played his last match for his country a few months after the 2002 World Cup.
Englands first choice for the previous three tournaments, he was an omission from the 2018 World Cup and has not represented his country since November 2017. Represented England while at Manchester City, Torino and West Ham
Nobody has represented England more than Shilton, who made his debut in 1970 and was playing for his country up until the 1990 World Cup. The well-travelled shot-stopper looks unlikely to be knocked off the top anytime soon.
