Welcome to your regular review of the five players of the world football weekend.
We start this week with the goalkeeper who kept Real Madrid at bay at the Bernabeu—throwing the La Liga title race wide open in the process.
Up next is an American abroad who’s making quite the impression this season in the colors of Fulham.
In position three is a Lazio midfielder who produced a remarkable moment of acrobatics in his team’s crucial win against Napoli.
Runners-up spot goes to a Real Madrid legend who is still doing the business in Germany for Schalke.
No prizes for guessing who assumes top billing this week. You may have heard of him.
