Incredible season for Alisson. Copa America Champion, Champions League winner, Champions League Golden Glove, Copa America Golden Glove & the Premier League Golden Glove in one season. Amazing.

Of course, Alisson won the Premier League Golden Glove and Champions League Golden Glove for Liverpool last season as he enjoyed a superb debut campaign at Anfield.
He kept an impressive 21 clean sheets in England's top flight and kept a further six clean sheets during Liverpool's successful European venture.
The 26-year-old then delivered heroics on the international scene, keeping five clean sheets as Brazil won their ninth Copa America title.
Before conceding against Peru in the final, he produced nine consecutive clean sheets for club and country.
Despite Alisson's remarkable contribution, he's modestly played down his chances of winning the Ballon d'Or.
"I just limit myself to doing my job," he said.
"There are a lot of top players aspiring for that prize. I'm just a goalkeeper."
Alisson is among the contenders, albeit an outsider, to win the coveted individual prize with Virgil van Dijk the odds-on favourite to win the Ballon d'Or.
