When looking at the top goalkeepers of the modern era they all share certain attributes which make a world class goalkeeper. Solid goalkeeping technique on handling, a variety of methods to distribute the ball, the agility, speed and spring needed to move around the goal mouth in order to make them a highly effective member of any team.
The best goalkeepers also have the presence needed to fill those around them with confidence, knowing that they have a capable, calm and assured figure behind them, not to mention arguably the most important attribute a goalkeeper will posses – having the character to deal with the ups and downs the life of a goalkeeper is sure to experience.
