The Football Association will honour 1966 World Cup hero Banks at the Czech Republic qualifier on Friday night with a minute's appreciation, banners and donations to charity following his death at age 81 last month.
England keeper Heaton revealed: “I was fortunate to meet him a while ago, at my dad's golf course. I had a quick chat with him and he was brilliant towards a young goalkeeper at the time.
“I asked him a few different questions about what sort of advice he would have for me. Only straightforward stuff, but a brilliant moment for me to have such a hero, really, to give me some really good words of advice.
“I was about 20, I think, around about that. It was just along the basis of 'What work you put in, you get out'. As straightforward as that, really.
“That, and I remember him telling me to make sure I enjoyed it. And he is right. You have certainly got to appreciate it. I have found that myself coming back after being out so long, you get an appreciation for being out there and enjoying every moment of it."
