Woijech Szczensy

Playing in goal for the co-host, its an understatement to say their isn’t pressure on the young polish keeper. But, he can handle it, playing in goal for Arsenal, young Woijech has proven to be one of the premier leagues best keepers. He’s emerged as a real talent between the sticks, firmly placing himself as arsenal number one for years to come. Helping them gain champions league qualification, as well as getting Arsenal into the group stages of the champions league by saving a penalty at Udinese. And with 18 clean sheets in 2011-12 its easy to see why Smuda has chosen him over the Tyton and Sandomierski.

Rui Patrico

Rated as the best goalkeeper in the Portuguese liga, the sporting man emerged as the first choice for the Portuguese national team under Paulo Bento, favoured over genoa keeper Eduardo, who played as the starter in south Africa. And still only 24, the young keeper has time to mould in to the next ‘Ricardo’, hoping to establish himself as Portugal number 1 for years to come.

Joe Hart

The best goalkeeper England have had for many a year, Joe Hart was snapped by Manchester city from lowly Shrewsbury. But he’s never disappointed, establishing himself as city number 1 in 10-11 season after his impressive loan spell at Birmingham, the young shot stopper helped Manchester city to the champions league and a title win in his first two years as starter. A cocky young keeper, he was just what England needed after the goalkeeping horrorshow in the world cup 2010 and he took the gloves after south Africa, emerging as the new number 1 during the 2012 euro qualifiers.

Manuel Neuer

Considered by some to the best in the world, the Germany goalkeeper made his name as an Schalke youth talent and he showed the world his skills in the world cup 2010, keeping three clean sheets in the tournament. He earned transfer to Bayern at the end of 2010-11 following his impressive performances at Schalke that got them to the semi finals. And he repaid Bayern by performing, securing a champions league final place by saving penalties from Cristiano and co in the Champions league semi final.
