Jennings won 119 caps for Northern Ireland over 22 years.
The soft-spoken Northern Irishman was one of the best goalkeepers in the world in a career that spanned three decades.
With Tottenham and Arsenal, Jennings played more than 1,000 games but he was also fortunate that the later years of his long career coincided with Northern Ireland's brief blossoming as an international side under Billy Bingham.
Jennings earned his first international cap against Wales in 1964 and ended his career a record 119 games and 22 years later against Brazil at the World Cup in Mexico on his 41st birthday.
A 3-0 defeat that day sealed Northern Ireland's elimination in the first round, but four years earlier Jennings had been in the side that had stunned Spain to advance to the last 16 as group winner.
Jennings was magnificent in keeping a clean sheet in front of 50,000 in Valencia and the Northern Irish won 1-0 despite finishing with 10 men. In the second round though not even Jennings' brilliance could thwart Platini's France.
