Goalkeepers simply don’t get enough credit. The role of the goalkeeper is not as bright or attractive as the striker, but of course it is very important, if not more so.
As the saying goes, attack wins games, but defense wins you. Goalkeepers, who play a central role on the defensive line, certainly put a lot of hope and responsibility on their shoulders. The fair share of games was largely decided solely by goalkeepers ’games.
In this post, we take a look at the top five goalkeepers since the turn of the century.
№ 5 Dida (Milan, Brazil)
Chelsea conceded just 15 goals during the 2004-05 season, an incredible win.
The Czech won the Golden Glove Award for keeping 24 clean sheets, a record that remains to this day. He was also an impressive part of Chelsea’s success in the UEFA Champions League. He scored a penalty in extra time and two penalties in a penalty shoot-out against Bayern Munich in the 2012 Champions League final, helping Chelsea to their first title of the tournament.
Petr Cech will definitely become one of the best goalkeepers in the history of football.
