Top 5 Goalkeepers in the world right now
Goalkeepers are very important for a team’s plan as seen in the World Cup winning performances of Iker Casillas and Manuel Neuer at the 2010 and 2014 World Cups.
A good goalie can sometimes be the difference makers to the fortunes of a team. In the past decade, certain big clubs have had legendary goalies manning the posts for them. Real Madrid had Iker Casillas, Manchester United had Edwin Van der Saar and Barcelona had Victor Valdes.
Among the current crop of goalkeepers, there are some that have stood out and here is a list of the top 5.
#1 David De Gea (Manchester United and Spain)
David De Gea is the reason why Manchester United still have a slim hope of the title.
He has kept Manchester United in the game with unbelievable saves this season.
There were question marks on his ability to adapt to the Premier League in his first two seasons, but since then he hasn’t looked back.
He had to wait for his turn to become the Spanish No.1 with Casillas dominating the position for his country. If we are to see a Spanish resurgence at the World Cup in Russia, De Gea will be an integral part of that.
He was Manchester United’s best player in the 2014-15 season and is currently in the form of his life.
