2) Manuel Neuer
The brave German goalkeeper is a very acrobatic athlete and has redefined the modern-day goalkeeping position in his career. He is the best example of a ‘sweeper-keeper’ who pushes himself up the pitch, staying near the last line of defense. Neuer was, in his prime, inevitably the best goalkeeper in the world but injuries in the past few years have made the world forget what a beast he was.
He still came out to win the 2019-20 UEFA Champions League with an astonishing performance in the final, denying some certain goals and showed the world that he’s still got it. The 2 times German footballer of the year winner has had a remarkable career winning 25 major trophies in his 15 years long career including a World Cup and 2 Champions league titles.
1) Jan Oblak
The Slovenian goalkeeper is, without a doubt, one of the best goalkeepers the world has ever seen. His goalkeeping statistics are just staggering. He has got an exceptional record in La Liga, having secured 123 clean sheets in just 229 appearances and conceding only 146 goals.
Oblak is the fastest goalkeeper ever to have secured 100 clean sheets in La Liga and the first non-Spanish goalkeeper ever to achieve this ‘100 clean sheets’ milestone in the Spanish league. He has got great passing ability, outstandingly quick reflexes, and a physically strong presence. He legitimately earns the title of being the best goalkeeper in the world.
