2Iker CasillasIker Casillas Fernández is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Portuguese club Porto and the Spain national team as a goalkeeper.

After the match, he received praise from fellow Spanish goalkeepers and England goalkeeper Gordon Banks, who stated "Casillas' reflexes are incredible. If he continues to play this well he will become one of the best goalkeepers in the history of the game.

Saint iker Casillas won the World Cup with Spain in 2010, making two crucial saves in the final in one-on-one situations against Arjen Robben. He also won the European Championship in 2008 and 2012. He has won the IFFHS World's Best Goalkeeper award four times.

Iker Casillas is the best goalkeeper in the world. He keeps his eye on the ball and never stops. He will always dive from far away and he won't care if he breaks a bone. It is impossible for any soccer player to score on him. He should be on the top of the list. He is a lot better then Petr Cech. Casillas is the best.

4 Spanish goalkeepers out of 10

3Manuel NeuerManuel Peter Neuer is a German professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Bayern Munich and the Germany national team.

Manuel Neuer is a very good goalkeeper I know I don't watch much of him but he is a very good goalkeeper I was watching the UFC league at Wembley and he was a very good goal keeper I saw the Bundesliga Bayern Munich VS Shalke 04 and he was rocking the house and a lot of friends from my school tell me his a entertaining and amazing goalkeeper that's why I think he should be best

He is the best because Bayern Munchen is the best...

Is this serious? He must be on first place, best goalkeeper right now Casillas and the other ones they are not even close to Neuer, that's a shame! I've expected more from people that should know something about football!

He deserves first

4Gianluigi BuffonGianluigi "Gigi" Buffon is an Italian professional goalkeeper who plays for and captains both Serie A club Juventus and the Italian national team.

Rated as one of the best in the world. Has taken both club and country to new heights compared to what other goal keepers may have done.

Buffon is a Legend! He should be in the top!

This old man is a superman... He is flying to save his team. He is loyal to Juve when Juve down to Serie B. Can Casillas and Cech do like that?

He is one of the best players of all time. Put him at #1.

5Petr Čech

Petr cech does well every year like in the champions league he smashed bayerns munichs faces.

He best and always has been, all round game is top notch compared to those like Casillas, stick Casillas in the Premier League he would look on par with Tim Howard. Petr Cech then Gianluigi Buffon, different level.

Petr Cech does so much better than many goalkeepers in the world, but as we all know that UEFA always picks best players and best goalkeepers from Spain, please explain to me how Victor Valdez is better than Petr Cech, did you lot not watch the champions league games? No goalkeeper would have done better than Petr Cech!

Petr Cech is a skilled, versatile and talent goalkeeper. He does it right. His career choice was right and he always makes right decisions as an independent and attentive goalkeeper. When he saves goals, he doesn't have time to celebrate. He just gets his head back in the game, ready and focused. He does his duty the RIGHT way. Chelsea was so lucky to have such a talented wonder on their team. - davakoh

6Joe HartCharles Joseph John "Joe" Hart is an English professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Premier League club Manchester City and the England national team.

The best keeper in the world right now. He is stable at Manchester City and England's national team. He has been one of the best in recent years and in the coming years, he will be easily the best of all the times.

Great keeper, together with city's not so awesome defense(although also very nice one) conceded few goals, and a great man
Deserves place after buffon, cech, casillas

Joe Hart is a stable, Reliable, confident goalkeeper. He gives 100% every match

This is simply the best.

7David de GeaDavid de Gea Quintana is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for English club Manchester United and the Spain national team.

I think that David de gea is better than Brad friedel+pepe reina

Good choice for the young keeper. The best under 22 goalkeeper, by 10000 miles. The 6ft4in shot-stopper is the youngest on this list at 21 years of age. The Red Devils shot-stopper saved a penalty from Robin van Persie last August in a 8-2 victory over Aresnal.

He has proved his doubters and critics wrong, at the age of 22 he has already established himself as number 1 for United, even from his recent performances in the European cup, which he kept 4 clean sheets out of 5, his form proves that he is a true contender for becoming one of the best goalkeepers!

I think David De Gea is the same as Peter Schmeichel who should be at the top so that would mean Peter and De Gea should be joint first Goalkeepers in the universe

8Victor Valdes

Victor Valdes keeps his eyes on the ball at all times. He can dive amazingly far. He will always catch the ball. He always tricks an opponent into shooting off target. Victor Valdes is amazing.

He is aggressive and he had some great moves, which proves that he is a fcbarcelona's star player

Valdes has excellent dives and outstanding saves. If there's a goalie on sale, Valdes is the one!

Victor Valdes is good, but lately has had a lack of holding on to the ball

9Hugo Lloris

I think his the best goalkeeper in the world his reflexes and I think he will be succesful at tottenham and france he know he is in the part when france when out from the group stage of fifa world cup but I bet he will improve his goalkeeper next year in fifa world cup 2014 in brazil and he will try to make france to go in to the world cup final and in the future he will be the best goalkeeper in thw world

Super reactions, amazing saves! Tottenham are lucky to have him!

1) More international experience and Champion's League experience than Neuer, Hart, and others.
2) Awesome reflexes!
3) Great anticipation!
4) His challenges and output on the feet are excellent.

Best goalkeeper ever seen!

12Thibaut CourtoisThibaut Nicolas Marc Courtois is a Belgian professional footballer who plays for English club Chelsea and the Belgium national team as a goalkeeper.

Mind my words... Gonna be the best keeper in the world in a few years!
He is without a doubt already one of the top 5 best keepers in the world at the moment!

He is jong, and he is all ready the best goalkeeper in spain. He is every game oneof the best players on the field.

He will grow with the years because he is humble, smart and physical. Then, he is young so will learn and will give Belgium his best spotlight in Brazil, making him unavoidable

Beautiful goalkeeper

Called Flying Kawin Thai top goalkeeper

16Wojciech Szczesny

He is the best goal keeper in the world if it wasn't for arsenal to have him they probably wouldn't be as good as they am now

He's the best in the world, the only reason he's not compared to Neuer is because the Arsenal defense isn't good

Dear Szczesny my name is ISAAC am 7 years old leaving in Maryland USA I love you and I want to be like you.

He is the best young goal keeper

17Peter SchmeichelPeter Bolesław Schmeichel is a Danish former professional footballer who played as a goalkeeper, and was voted the IFFHS World's Best Goalkeeper in 1992 and 1993. He is best remembered for his most successful years at English club Manchester United, whom he captained to the 1999 UEFA Champions League more.

You got it all wrong peter is the best in the world

Peter Schmeichel is obviously in the top three in the world, plus in my opinion he played for the best team in the world, Manchester United Football Club

If de gea is fifth who is not as good as Peter was back in the day. I reckon he should be first or second, he was unstoppable at united

The best I've ever seen.
