The former England goalkeeper Peter Shilton has been banned from driving for 20 months after pleading guilty to drink driving at Colchester Magistrates Court.
Magistrate Ilona Perkins-Van Mil also ordered the 63-year-old to pay fines and costs totalling £1,020.
Shilton, of Kenilworth in Warwickshire, was arrested near the home of a female friend on Manor Road in Colchester last month.
The former goalie is England's most capped player, having made 125 appearances for his country.
He played more than 1,000 competitive matches for 11 clubs including Stoke City, Nottingham Forest, Derby County and Southampton.
