Top 10 Oldest Footballers To Play At The FIFA World Cup

#4. Peter Shilton: Age 43


While Italy has Zoff and Buffon, England has Banks and Shilton. The later is one of the oldest players to ever play in a World Cup at 40 years and 9 months when he played for England in the third place match against Italy in the 1990 World Cup. Shilton played for almost every club in England but is best known for his time at Leicester City, Nottingham Forest, and Southampton. He made his England debut in 1970 and is the most-capped player in the country’s history with 125 appearances. Shilton stands alongside Gordon Banks as the disputed best goalkeeper in the history of the English National Team.
