Joe Hart: 50 England caps and counting gallery

Joe Hart won his 50th England cap against Italy on Tuesday evening and to celebrate this notable milestone, we look back at his first half-century in pictures...

Hart has been a part of the England squad since 2008 - that's already seven years  - this is his journey to 50 caps...

It all began in Trinidad way back in 2008 when Joe was awarded his first full cap against Trinidad & Tobago and, of course, kept a clean sheet on his debut as England won 2-0.

Prior to that Joe had been a regular for England Under-21s and is pictured here in action against Spain  in 2007.

Fittingly, Joe won win 21 Under-21 caps and is pictured above in action against Holland in 2007

Joe makes the winning save for the Under-21s in a penalty shoot-out at the Uefa U21 championships in 2007 - Micah Richards is first to congratulate him.

His most famous England moment so far? Joe saves a Ronaldinho penalty at Wembley then makes another stunning save from the rebound against Brazil in 2013. His clean sheet against Lithuania last Friday was his 27th in 49 games for his country  - not a bad record!

Congratulations from everyone at MCFC, Joe!
