1. David Seaman

Seaman’s place as England’s number one was questioned after his part in the game-winning goal by Brazil. He retained it after the World Cup, but another high-profile gaffe – conceding straight from a corner against Macedonia in Euro 2004 qualification – saw the Arsenal midfielder sacked.

At the conclusion of the 2002-03 season, the veteran moved to Manchester City from North London. However, after just one season there, at the age of 40, he chose to put up his gloves.

Seaman has maintained a lesser profile than some of his old colleagues after retiring, although he has had a few TV appearances and a short coaching stint with Arsenal. In this year’s exhibition game, he was also the goalkeeping coach for the England Soccer Aid squad.
