Golden Glove 2014 trophy

Golden Glove award is give to the best goal keeper of the tournament. The FIFA technical study group chooses the contenders and winners based on their performance throughout the FIFA World Cup. With so many brilliant individual performances from the goalkeepers in the 2014 edition so far, it will be a tough choice for the committee.

It is to be noted that although this is an award specific to the goalkeeping position only, the player can also win the Golden Ball award for his outstanding performance throughout the tournament. The most recent and notable goalkeeper to have won the Golden Ball award was Oliver Kahn. The German goalkeeper won the award in 2002.

This award was earlier known as the Yashin Award in the honour of the late Soviet goalkeeper Lev Yashin. The award was renamed in 2010 to Golden Glove award and Spain’s Iker Casillas was the worthy winner of the award with 5 clean sheets.

Here are the contenders for the Golden Glove awards in terms of clean sheets:
