The 10 Best Goalkeepers In World Football Right Now Have Been Ranked

The 10 Best Goalkeepers In World Football Right Now Have Been Ranked

Jan Oblak has been named the best goalkeeper in the world, just ahead of Liverpool and Brazil shot-stopper Alisson Becker.

The Atletico Madrid star reminded everyone of his quality with an outstanding display at Anfield in the Champions League in March, ironically against Adrian (not on this list) - the stand-in for the man he pipped to top spot.

Football magazine FourFourTwo placed Oblak and Alisson first and second on their top 10 - and the two 27-year-olds are both now entering what's usually considered a goalkeeper's prime, so could get better yet.

FourFourTwo praised Alisson as "one of the two signings, alongside Virgil van Dijk, credited for turning Liverpool from nearly men into European champions and Premier League winners-elect."

In third spot, Barcelona's Marc-Andre ter Stegen came in five places higher than his rival for the Germany national team shirt, Bayern Munich's long-standing No 1 Manuel Neuer.

Completing the top five are Real Madrid's Thibaut Courtois, hailed as a "fitting long-term replacement to Iker Casillas," just above the man he replaced at Real, Keylor Navas. The PSG keeper leads the Champions League standings with five clean sheets this season.

Two more Premier League stars - Manchester United's David de Gea and Manchester City's Ederson - feature in the lower half of the top 10. Both are undoubtedly world-class keepers, despite a few errors in the 2019/20 season.

FourFourTwo's full list is below for your enjoyment or endless, furious disagreement.
