Manchester United’s Peter Schmeichel, Manchester City’s Joe Hart and Real Madrid’s Iker Casillas have all been integral to their team’s success. A well trained goalkeeper gives the backline confidence knowing there is a formidable last line of defense, while strikers know they won’t be under constant pressure to make up for their goalkeeper’s ‘gaffes’. It’s a fact: an effective, well drilled and confident goalkeeper can be the decisive factor in a team’s performance. But all too often, the goalkeeper is the most ignored player in training.
