Mortgage and savings provider Cheltenham & Gloucester has conducted a poll of 2,500 football fans to find out the greatest save in the history of the game.
Top place was taken by English legend Gordon Banks for his stunning stop from Pele's header made during the England v Brazil World Cup quarter final in 1970.
Second place in the survey went to Colombian custodian Rene Higuita for his audacious 'scorpion' back-flip at Wembley in a friendly with England in 1996.
And third in the poll was Peter Schmeichel for a save against Rene Wagner of Rapid Vienna in a Champions league fixture.
Rick Hunkin, C&G's director of savings, says: “There are some good saves in the top 10 from legendary goalkeepers. Fabien Barthez's recent penalty save from David Beckham will be one at the forefront of every Englishman's mind for sometime to come. C&G's current best save is the C&G bonus tracker which pays up to 4.70 gross.”
