Muslera is sh*t, but he's still a lot better than Castillo, who is not only 100% crap but also very small, I'll never understand how he ever became a professional goalkeeper, I'm serious in saying he's the worst keeper I've ever seen at the top level, he played for Botafogo here in Brazil.
Football has changed though, physical attributes like height and athleticism have become much more important compared to the early days. The sport has become alot more professional.
Best keeper of all time, maybe tied with Yashin was Ladislao Mazurkiewicz.
True, but still agility and reflexes can compensate height for a keeper IMO
The USA vs Argentina game is level at 1 each.
The new young talent coming out of the USA National Youth Training Camp is absolutely amazing. Really excited to see Chandler, Ream, Agudelo, all the young guys really making impressions in the MLS and on the National Stage. So pleased to see a steady rise in talent coming from the United States, we are a futbol starved nation sometimes and for far to long we had to settle for mediocre domestic expectations. With the recent success of the MLS though and ESPN's coverage of the World Cup and US Men's National Team the future is looking bright.
Think they're all overrated myself.I do rate Diskerud and Agudelo (not that much), though.
Overrated compared to whom exactly? The US National Team starting XI outside of Holden, Bradley and Altidore are getting up there in age...
Anyone watching this football masterclass by brazil,I know its only the sweaty,s but its a joy to watch .
I've said it before somewhere else but IMO Neymar is world class already.
And he is still playing in Brazil, isnt he? His price tag should not be very high
His pricetag is high, didn't Chelsea offer 30 or 35 million when he rejected them? And read in an article today that his dream is playing in the Serie A.
