Iker Casillas!

According to me the spanish legend is one of the best goalkeeper of all times!

He has played 881 matches in his whole career and has conceded less than 1 goal on an average per match. Out of 881 matches 338 matches were clean sheets i.e more thanone third of the matches he played he conceded 0 goals.

He has won 1 world cup, 2 European championships, 3 Champions Leagues, 5 Spanish Championships, 2 Spanish Cups, 4 Spanish Super Cups and a FIFA Club World Cup.

Jan Oblak!

This Solvenian goalkeeper is currently the best goalkeeper in the world according to me and I am sure many other football fans. His stats say it all. 45% of the matches he has played were clean sheets. He
has conceded 0.64 goals per 90 minutes. On an average it took 142 minutes (more than 1 and a half games) for him to concede a goal.

He has won 1 Europa League, 1 UEFA Super Cup, 1 Spanish Super Cup, 1 Portugese Cup, 1 Portugese Championship and a portugese league cup. He was also nominated for the ballon d’or in 2017 as well as 2018.

Oblak seems like a mean goalie. One of the best currently.

But we will need to wait for a little while for him and his contemporaries to be considered as best of al time candidates!

Gianluigi Buffon- The greatest goalkeeper of 21st Century.

From his famous Serie A debut against AC Milan as a teenager to leading Juventus to a record-breaking seventh successive Scudetto, Gianluigi Buffon boasts a sustained level of excellence that is simply unrivalled. As his great rival Casillas says, “It’s impossible to find any weaknesses in his game.”

As well as being a national icon for the role he played in Italy’s 2006 World Cup triumph – when he was beaten only by an own goal and a penalty – Buffon is a legend at Juve for having stayed with the club in spite of their relegation to Serie B that same year.

The one major title missing from his CV is the Champions Leaguebut its absence does nothing to detract from his standing within the game. Indeed, he bows out as one of the few universally loved figures in football.

After yesterday’s Champions League final add Manuel Neuer to the list.

▇ At 25, he was voted best German footballer of the year. ⠀
▇ At 27, he won the treble and was voted the best goalkeeper in the world for the first time ahead of legends like Gianluigi Buffon and Iker Casillas. ⠀
▇ At 28, he won the World Cup and the golden glove. ⠀
▇ At 30, he was voted best goalkeeper in the world again, the 4th time in his career. ⠀
▇ And today, at 34, he is still at the best level and won champions League with a clean sheet.

Manuel Neuer is not only the best goalkeeper of the last decade, he is also one of the best goalkeepers of all time. :heart::de:

Buffon, Neuer and Alisson Becker are my favorite goalkeepers among the current lot.

Neuer has proven time and again his exceptional goalkeeping excellence and yesterday was no different. His rock-solid performance in UCL Finals to deny PSG an opening goal in the first half after pulling off a superb double save to deny Neymar was a masterclass par excellence.

Neuer is inarguably one of the greatest goalkeeper of all time.

Alisson Becker

Liverpool’s Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker is one of the best gloveman in the world with both the FIFA and Ballon D’Or award for best goalkeeper under his name.

The 27-year-old was the main goalkeeper of the Liverpool squad that won the Premier League this season to get their first league title in 30 years. He was also the part of the Reds team that won the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup last year.

Becker has now set his eyes on winning the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar. Alisson has been capped 44 times for Brazil and is the undisputed first-choice goalkeeper for the Brazilian side, ahead of Manchester City’s Ederson.

Alisson is regarded as the best shot-stopper in the Premier League. Alisson cites Neuer as an inspiration for his ‘sweeper keeper’ style.

Ex-Roma goalkeeping coach Roberto Negrisolo has praised Alisson by calling him the “Messi of goalkeepers,” as he believed he has the “same mentality as Messi” and the similar ability to “mark an era.”
