When looking at top goalkeepers of the modern era they all share certain attributes that make them world-class. Solid technique on handling, distribution, agility, speed and the spring needed to move around the goalmouth.
The best goalkeepers also have the presence needed to fill those around them with confidence, knowing that they have a capable, calm and assured figure behind them, not to mention arguably the most important attribute a goalkeeper will posses - having the character to deal with the ups and downs the life of a goalkeeper is sure to experience.
