Top 5 / Top 10

The goalkeepers in this World Cup have been in phenomenal form and have won plaudits and respect of their countrymen with mesmerizing displays be itblocking oppositions shotsor coming out of their traditional role and playing as a sweeper.We take a look at the best goalkeepers at the 2014 World Cup until now.(Stats prior to the Quarter Finals)

#5 Guillermo Ochoa - Mexico

Ochoa led his team to inspiring displays against Brazil in their group fixture which ended with Ochoa being awarded the Man of The Match award for keeping the score at 0-0 at full time. Mexico qualified behind Brazil from the group and set up an encounter against the Dutch. Eventually, it was the Dutch who tasted victory.

Ochoa maintained a save rate of 77% throughout the tournament. The Dutch would have certainly felt as if they were up against a brick wall stopping them from scoring in each of their attacks.

Ochoa played for Ajaccio in the French league and is now a free agent, which means he is looking for a new club. It shouldn’t be too difficult for him to find new suitors considering his brilliant form in the World Cup and the most important reason is he won’t come with a huge price tag.
