How often do we see goalkeepers making the headlines for a wonderful save? Almost never...More often than not, they only appear on headlines for a horrible blunder. Life as a goalkeeper is tough, an accidental blunder will make them every supporter's worst enemy and risk being dropped to the bench. Getting back into the team is never easy for a goalkeeper.. Sometimes, a good substitute goalkeeper won’t even be able to play more than a handful of games a season if the team’s first choice keeper is doing well. Take a look at Shay Given when he was at Manchester City and you will understand why.
What many people do not know is that goalkeepers actually play a very vital role in the team, keeping their team alives in crucial games. So this post is dedicated to all the goalkeepers in the world..You're appreciated!
