As the nation gears up for England's last 16 game, the nation's two most capped goalkeepers, Peter Shilton and David Seaman, are encouraging men to 'save the nation' through blood donation. NHS Blood and Transplant is rallying during the World Cup, with an urgent need for blood donors, particularly O negative, B negative, male, and black donors with the rare subtype Ro.
Potential donors are encouraged to register and to book an appointment at a local donor centre and if they cannot get an appointment, look to book it for when the tournament has finished.
England stalwarts Shilton (125 caps), whose wife worked in the NHS for more than 20 years, and Seaman (75 caps), are well known for the saves they’ve made for their country and are now calling upon the nation to ‘Save England’ off the pitch, by donating blood to help save lives.
