50 Best Goalkeepers in World Football

As Arsenal and Tottenham have painfully learned over the past year, a successful team requires a world-class keeper. Name a successful team in world football, and you will find that their success begins with a capable, dependable goalkeeper playing for them in between the goal sticks.

However, despite their role in their team's success, goalkeepers tend to find themselves much less appreciated and unheralded in comparison with the team's star defenders, midfielders and strikers.

Today, we at Bleacher Report will go against the grain and spotlight the world's 50 best current goalkeepers, highlighting their career achievements, best moments and contributions to their team's success.

While I do have confidence in the keepers selected for this list and the order in which they were selected, a list of such size and magnitude is bound to raise disagreements from readers over order and exclusions from the list. So before I get torn to shreds here, please know that I did my best, and that I am open to suggestions on changes in the ordering and the possible additions.
