Goalkeepers occupy a unique defensive position in football teams, because they are the only ones who may actually touch the ball with their hands. They usually represent the very last line of defense against the opposing team, using their entire body to block any shots aimed at the goal. Even though they are generally not supposed to leave their position, some goalies have been known to rush forward and maybe even score a goal themselves in particularly heated or extraordinary European or World Cup matches. For the most part, goalkeepers are remembered for particularly impressive saves during penalty shootouts or penalty kicks. During corner kicks, they would often leap forward to grab the ball to disperse the group of opposing players gathering in the penalty area. Some well-known and popular goalkeepers are Gianluigi Buffon, Manuel Neuer, Tim Howard and Gordon Banks.
Go and dust off your favourite pair of gloves and make sure not a single shot makes it past you. These goalkeeper games are all about timing, tension and keeping a cool head. Will you save the day or fall flat on your face?
