Manuel Neuer (GER – FCB)
It does not need much talking and explaining.
The German has been the best since 2012 at
the very least. An all-rounded Goal-Keeper
with a high level of consistency. His famous
sweeper-keeper role has become a trade-mark.
His performance against Algeria, as a prime
example, was nothing short of pure gold. He
touched the ball outside penalty area for an
unheard of 19 times. The match showed his
class, mental strength and importance for a
team which implement a high defensive line.
This year, Bayern Munich Goalkeeper added
the last missing piece to his illustrious cabinet,
the most important trophy in football, World Cup.
