Ranked: Top 5 Best GoalKeepers in The World 2022

What distinguishes the best goalkeepers in the world?

The goalie’s position is different than it once was, with No. 1s expected to initiate plays as well as serve as the final line of defense. 

It’s common known that having a dependable goalkeeper may help you win a lot of games in a season, and the goalkeepers listed below are great examples.

As a result, I’ve compiled a list of the best five goalkeepers in the world.

5. Edouard Mendy

Frank Lampard signed the 29-year-old as a replacement for the erratic Kepa in 2020, and he has been a revelation since then.

Last season, his inspirational Champions League performances, particularly his eye-catching display against Real Madrid in the semi-finals, were crucial in the Blues’ European triumph.

This season, he’s been the Premier League’s standout goalkeeper, with a joint-top save percentage of 79.2 percent.

4. Ederson

Few goalkeepers can match Manchester City’s Brazilian goalkeeper in an era when goalkeepers are expected to help in build-up play.

Ederson is a master at putting City on the front foot, whether he smacks it first time to Fernandinho between two onrushing attackers or pings it 60 yards onto Raheem Sterling’s big toe.

3. Manuel Neuer

A goalkeeper who came third in the 2014 Ballon d’Or vote began to suffer from recurrent foot ailments toward the end of the decade.

Calls for Marc-Andre ter Stegen to be named as Neuer’s replacement in the national team became louder as the Bayern Munich and Germany captain’s health deteriorated.

After winning the Bundesliga for the tenth consecutive season the previous season, Neuer guided Bayern to a triple in 2019/20, putting an end to most of those worries and anxieties.

2. Jan Oblak

As Atletico Madrid won their first Spanish title since 2014, the Slovenian conceded the fewest goals in La Liga last season.

Diego Simeone’s team has started the season well, conceding only six goals in eight games. The majority of this is attributable to the cat-like reflexes of the 28-year-old organization.

1. Gianluigi Donnarumma

This man has broken the hearts of England fans. When the Azzurri won Euro 2020 at Wembley in July, Donnarumma was a sensation. In the tournament’s final shootout, the 22-year-old made two penalty saves and was named the tournament’s best player.
