Goalkeepers hold the most special, distinguished, responsible, and trustworthy position in the lineup, serving as the team’s backbone with their leadership qualities from the back. A goalkeeper with exceptional vision of the game leads their players in orchestrating offensive moves while also nullifying opponents' attacks through vocal guidance and keen observation.

From thwarting opponents' offensive prowess with safe hands to participating in buildup play, a goalkeeper has an all-encompassing role throughout the entire 90 minutes.

With their smart positional sense, sharp instincts and anticipation skills, agile saves and quick reflexes, unwavering composure, and resilient mentality, shot-stoppers truly prove their worth as assets to their teams.
