SPANISH GOALKEEPERS CASILLAS - ZUBIZARRETA IN TOP 10 IFFHS LAST 25 YEARS BEST LIST

The FIFA backed International Federation of Football History & Statistics ( IFFHS ) has released their Top 10 list of the "Best Goalkeepers" in the last 25 years. There are two Spanish players on that list with current Spanish National Football Team Captain & Real Madrid goalkeeper IKER CASILLAS in 4ºth place, while ex FC Barcelona & Valencia CF player ZUBIZARRETA is in 7th place.

While most have no doubt that the Nº1 World Goalkeeper is currently Real Madrid player IKER CASILLAS, the IFFHS does emphasize that it is over the last 25 years. While Casillas is still relatively young - 29 years of age - those above him have been in the "business" much longer & are true veterans.

Buffon 
According to the IFHHS it is Italian player BUFFON who takes the Nº1 spot ( for the moment) ahead of retired Danish & Manchester United player Schmeichel in 2º place, with 3ºrd going to currently active Dutch player Van Der Sar, also with Manchester United.


Here is the Top 10 IFHHS Goalkeepers (last 25 years) list:

1 Buffon (ITA)

2 Schmeichel (DEN)
3 Van der Sar (HOL)

6 Chilavert (PAR)
