The World Cup’s Keepers to Keep an Eye On

📅06 April 2014, 15:11

Manuel Neuer

will represent Germany in the tournament and few will find quarrel with holding him in high regard. The 27-year-old has an astounding season with Bayern Munich and will no doubt be giving strikers more to think about on the approach.

Tim Howard

has proven himself time again on the Everton Squad and this keeper hailing from the United States will have the benefit of a wealth of experience in his third world cup appearance.

Fernando Muslera

of Uruguay no doubt brings his own style and class to the field, making him a sure choice to start in Brazil. The 27 year old raw talent and will only get better as far as we can tell.

Joe Hart

is a top performer in the box and will make England’s starting team, despite his lengthy respite on the Manchester City bench due to a marked lack of application on the field.

Igor Akinfeev

may not get the attention he deserves in the Russian League, but this keep has talent. Let’s hope he brings his best to Brazil and earns the league a bit of deserved attention.

Gianluigi Buffon

may be a bit of a late bloomer when it comes to World Cup play, only making his first appearance in the tournament at 36. Playing for Italy, this goalkeeper will no doubt impress despite his ample age.
