A Goalkeeper is often one of the most under-appreciated players on the pitch. While the strikers who bang in those goals from game to game are hailed as heroes, the goalkeepers who help their teams maintain the status quo in a match are ruthlessly derided for their mistakes. Nevertheless, a good goalkeeper is one of the most crucial cogs in a match winning team. We take a look at some of the best goalkeepers to grace the stage today:
10. Marc Andre-Ter Stegen (FC Barcelona and Germany)
The highly rated 22-year old Marc Andre Ter-Stegen moved to Barcelona in the summer of 2014 from Borussia Monchengladbach, after impressing with the German club, making 108 appearances over 4 years. Bought with the idea of making him Victor Valdes’ long time replacement, Ter Stegen has so far played a supporting role to the more experienced Claudio Bravo. He won the treble in his first season in Spain, playing in Barcelona’s wins in the Copa del Rey and UEFA Champions League matches. Ter Stegen has represented Germany at several youth levels and made his senior international debut in 2012.
