Italy has named its 23-man squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. The most glaring omission is the decision not to selectGiuseppe Rossi for the team due to the striker'slack of match sharpness.

United blind to let Pogba leave

Juventus goalkeeper and World Cup winner Gianluigi Buffon has claimed that neither he nor his teammates can understand how Manchester United allowed a talent such as Paul Pogba to leave on a free transfer and claimed that United were blind to part ways with the Frenchman.

Pogba arrived in Turin in 2012 and despite being only 19 at the time, he quickly developed into a crucial figure for Juventus, ousting Claudio Marchisio ironically, another midfielder on United's radar from the starting XI and becoming one of Europe's best midfielders.

Who Is The Best Goalkeeper In Europe?

Soccer Tickets Online at related • 1 view

That is a question I have been thinking about since research some stats on Inter Milan goalkeeper Samir Handanovic earlier this week.

The most common measurements used to compare goalkeepers are number of clean sheets and number of goal conceded.

If you look at the top four leagues in Europe combined (Serie A, La Liga, Bundesliga and Premier League) this is how the top goalkeepers stack up against each other

Most Clean Sheets

  • Morgan De Sanctis (Roma) – 9
  • Víctor Valdés (Barcelona) 7
  • Hugo Lloris (Spurs) – 7
  • Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus) – 6
  • Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich) – 6
  • Artur Boruc (Southampton) – 6
  • Tim Howard (Everton) – 6
  • Jussi Jaaskelainen (West Ham) – 6

The one surprise name on the list is Jaaskelainen as West Ham are the team not in the top half of the table.

Better Goalkeeper: Gianluigi Buffon or Manuel Neuer?

SWOL at related • 0 views

Quite simply, the goalkeeper position is the hardest position to rate when comparing players. Often times goalkeepers can be made or broken by their team's success; unfairly condemned or built up thanks to the players in front of them. There are an abundance of goalkeepers in the game today that are considered "great" players, who have been the product of the team in front of them, while at the same time there are goalkeepers who don't get enough credit because their team makes them look bad.
