The Best Men’s Goalkeeper nominees

FIFA announced the final three-man shortlist for The Best Men’s Goalkeeper award on September 2nd.

The winner of said award will be announced on September 23rd.

The three players who made it onto the final shortlist are Liverpool’s Alisson, Manchester City’s Ederson and Barcelona’s  Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Alisson would win the Champions League with Liverpool in June, and also concede the least goals in the 2018/19 Premier League season, 22.

As for Ederson, he won the domestic treble with Manchester City, and conceded just 23 goals in the English top-flight last campaign.

Ederson on Alisson

Both Ederson and Alisson are now on international duty with Brazil.

Alisson was Brazil’s main keeper earlier this year, as they won the 2019 Copa America.

With the pair set to go head-to-head over The Best Men’s Goalkeeper award, Ederson has stated that he thinks that Alisson is a step ahead of both himself and Ter Stegen:

“I think the three of us were the best, but I see Alisson one step ahead.

 “He was great in the Premier League, won the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and had a great Copa America as well.

“So I think whoever wins will be deserving and I’m happy for two Brazilian goalkeepers to reach this level.” As quoted by Goal.
