Peter Shilton has baffled fans after appearing to wish himself happy birthday in a post on Twitter.
Shilton entrenched himself as one of English football’s greatest ever goalkeepers during an illustrious playing career with Leicester City, Stoke City and Nottingham Forest, as well as becoming the most capped player in England’s men’s team with 125 caps.
He was a remarkable goalkeeper and leader, and was present for England in three World Cups and twenty-years of action.

A birthday message from his wife Steph Shilton was tweeted on his own profile to the amusement of football supporters.
The tweet said: “Happy birthday to my wonderful husband @Peter_Shilton who I absolutely adore” accompanied with a photo of the couple together.
Although it is assumed that the couple share a Twitter account, it still amused football fans who replied with funny tweets.
