Current club: Bristol City
David is a massive 6’5” goalkeeper who was born in Hertfordshire and initially made his name at Watford, clocking up 89 Division Two appearances in his early 20s.
Then he had seven seasons in the top flight with Liverpool, winning the League Cup in 1995, before further moves to Aston Villa, West Ham United, Manchester City and Portsmouth.
With Pompey, who he joined in 2006, he won The FA Cup and became the club’s first player to be capped for England at senior level for 23 years. He also made history on 14 February 2009 when he played in his 536th Premier League fixture to beat Gary Speed’s all-time record.
David won ten caps for the Under-21s before making his senior debut under Glenn Hoddle in a friendly against Mexico at Wembley on 29 March 1997. He kept a clean sheet.
England’s goalkeeping duties were chiefly shared by Seaman and Martyn in the next five seasons but David started 14 consecutive internationals from February 2003 and was first choice for the Euro 2004 Finals in Portugal, starting all four games.
After a period with Paul Robinson between the posts, he reclaimed the jersey under Fabio Capello and had won 48 caps by the end of 2008-09.
