Goalkeepers You Can Bet Your Money On

If you had a choice to bet upon some of the greatest goalkeepers in the world, who would it be?
All soccer fans have their own list of favourite goalkeepers of all time. These lists may differ a bit depending on which part of the world they are from. But there are some names that will also make it to the list. Goalkeepers are ranked according to the duration of time that they play without conceding goals. Football is different from other sports in the sense that it's a unique combo of strategy, skill, teamwork, stamina and quick decision making. Goalkeepers especially have to combine all of these above mentioned skills.

It's also a lot of pressure when you are betting on these goalkeepers. Each move is worth a lot of money and there are a lot of people betting in the UK on soccer. All these factors make football a truly special sport and goalkeepers the custodians of the sport.  So without further ado, let's look at our list of some of the greatest goalkeepers in history who would have never let you down had you put your money on them.

Edwin Van Der Sar

Edwin Van Der Sar is known to be a Dutch legend. His stint with Man U was his finest as he recorded 1311 minutes in the field without conceding a single goal. Through his career that spans 21 years, Van Der Sar has also played with Fulham, Ajax and Juventus and was very popular for his counter-attacks. It is known that he was skilled with both feet and was a sweeper-keeper. Without doubt, he's someone you could have put your money on without a worry even if this was about gambling in India.

Gordon Banks

Gordon Banks

English goalkeeper Gordon Banks almost always ranks in the top three of everyone's favourite list of keepers. His performance in the 1966 World Cup is the stuff of legends. His greatest moment was when he saved a direct header from none other than Pele in the 1970 World Cup. Gordon's career was stopped after a car crash where he lost his eye.

Dino Zoff

If you've been an Italy fan then you are definitely a Dino Zoff fan. He was 40 years old and leading the Italian soccer team when he played in the 1982 World Cup. He's always been known for his subtle and traditional way of playing because of which he went on to become a coach for the Italian team.

Oliver Kahn

German fans will never forget the great Oliver Kahn. Kahn had a career that spanned 21 years and he won the 2002 World Cup Golden Ball which made him the only goalkeeper to do so.  He was known fondly as "The Titan" and was revered for his leadership and competitive spirit. Many publications have written about his virtues as a sportsman. 

Lev Yashin

Lev Yashin is a name that will undoubtedly be part of every list of greatest goalkeepers ever. He was born in the erstwhile Soviet Union and was fondly known as Black Panther because he wore an all-black outfit and was tremendously agile and acrobatic. His defence was very aggressive and we used to run headlong into attackers. Yashin saved over 150 penalty kicks in his career which became a record. He's a name one could safely bet upon. 

This list of top goalkeepers is probably not long enough. If we had to include more names, we would go for Sepp Maier and Peter Shilton too.
