The goalkeeper can be overlooked in terms of their importance in determining the outcome of a match
In the clip below from a recent Glazier Soccer Clinic Coach Eric Briggs discusses the Keeper.
Why is a goalkeeper the most important player?
- Without a talented goalkeeper, any game can be lost
- They are the beginning and end of every possession
- They are responsible for refocusing the team because when they get the ball that means that the other 10 players failed to do their jobs and must regain composure
- They train differently, where different kits, have different responsibilities and expectations
- The goalkeeper is the ROCK of the team.
