Why does every football league show goals scored as the theme of their League or Championships? This is a question that has always piqued my interest. Goalkeepers might find it humiliating to watch themselves concede goals on television. So, today, we’d like to discuss what a goalkeeper contribute to the team and who is the finest among all.

A goalkeeper’s contribution

Goalkeeping involves more than just diving, shot stopping, and holding the ball in the air. A goalie is the only one who keeps an eye on his team’s and opponents’ build up. As a result, a goalkeeper with a strong tactical awareness, such as Manuel Neuer, is a valuable asset to a team. Jan Oblak is an example of someone who can push a bad squad to perform better. Allison is at the top of the list when it comes to goalie positioning.
