Who Will Be The Best Goalkeeper At Euro 2020
For the 2020 Euros, there will be 12 major cities in Europe that will host 51 matches. With so many good teams in play, it will be difficult for Portugal to keep the trophy they gained in 2016. In this article, I will talk about the best goalkeeper that will take part in this month’s tournament.
# 1: Thibaut Courtois-Belgium
During the first few months of his life in Madrid, Thibaut Courtois had struggled to establish himself as one of the world’s top goalkeepers, but he has regained his previous standing over the last two seasons by first helping Real Madrid achieve the 2019/20 championship, and then helping them finish second.
# 2: Manuel Neuer-Germany
Nobody even comes close to Manuel Neuer, even though he is now 35 years old when it comes to shot-stopping. He has had a huge impact on Bayern’s recent success over the last two seasons, helping them win the triple in 2018/19 and then leading them to another Bundesliga victory this year. If you are considering placing a wager on him winning the golden gloves, make sure to take advantage of the Sportingbet sign up offer.
# 3: Hugo Lloris-France
Lloris was back to his old, solid form, making great saves and releasing the ball calmly and precisely at Tottenham Hotspur, even though the team was struggling. There were more goals than Lloris kept out (5.1) than any other Premier League goalkeeper during this season. He has already won the world cup and is in with a very good chance to win the Euros.
# 4: Kasper Schmeichel-Denmark
In recent years, Kasper Schmeichel has shown to be a solid performer for Leicester, helping the Foxes win the Premier League in 2016 and later this year lifting the FA Cup trophy. At the end of the match, in a close contest, the Dane made some great saves to hold off Chelsea. He is in his prime as a goalkeeper at 34-year-old and is very nimble and has shown his abilities again and again in critical circumstances.
# 5: Gianluigi Donnarumma-Italy
Already having 251 club games to his record, the 22-year-old has already been capped for Italy 25 times, and he is currently their indisputable first-choice goalkeeper. Donnarumma has come into the Euros having performed well in the league as the Serie A’s joint-leader in goals conceded with 14 clean sheets. It seems as if Italy has unearthed a potential long-term replacement for Gianluigi Buffon.
There are also lots of other great goalkeepers to look out for at Euro 2020, such as Wojciech Szczęsny (Poland), Peter Gulacsi (Hungry), Lukas Hradecky (Finland). It will also be interesting to see who has the number one spot for Spain. It is between David de Gea and Unai Simon, who are both capable of being the best in the world but also prone to the occasional mistake. Who do you think will win the Golden Gloves at the Euros?
