5. Petr Cech (Arsenal and Czech Republic)
Chelsea legend Petr Cech, now playing for London rivals Arsenal, has to be one of the most respected goalkeepers in the world today. With Chelsea, Cech won four Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three Football League Cups, one UEFA Europa League and one UEFA Champions League. He holds a number of goalkeeping records, including the Premier League record for fewest appearances required to reach 100 clean sheets, having done so in 180 league appearances. Coming back from a life-threatening head injury in 2006, Cech has a never say die attitude that many believe may propel Arsenal to their first title since 2003-04.
