Just like strikers and defenders, goalkeepers are also an important part of a football team. However, they are mostly underrated and hardly discussed. It is a role that can easily be regarded as a ‘Thankless Job’ as a goalkeeper is expected to save every goal. If they do it, they are the heroes. Otherwise, they are the reasons for the loss.
Goalkeepers’ jobs become much more difficult during a penalty shootout as there are no defenders at that time. Sometimes, they succeed in saving the team while sometimes they fail. Meanwhile, here we are going to discuss the best goalkeepers. Although there are many, we have filtered the Top five keepers of all time. In this listicle, we will have a look at who are those Top five goalkeepers.
The former England goalkeeper Gordan Banks is regarded as the all-time best in English football. He has won two English Cup titles and one FIFA Club World Cup. The Sheffield-born is always remembered for his brilliant save against Brazil in the 1970 FIFA World Cup.
Banks pulled off an incredible reflex save against the powerful and directive header from the legend, Pele. Sadly, his career came to an early end after losing one of his eyes. He died at the age of 81 in 2019.
