While Real Madrid, Bayern Munich or Juventus went into a recession period, the Premier League teams have been relentless thanks to reasonable strategy.
Not many people think that Liverpool will overthrow Barcelona‘s “pal” after losing 0-3 at the Nou Camp and without the services of Salah and Firmino in the return leg. However, with determination, courage, and a bit of luck, Jurgen Klopp’s teachers did a miracle, with a 4-0 reversal that shook the bridge world.
Only 24 hours later, Tottenham is almost desperate when Ajax lead 3-0 final. However, the “rooster” has risen unbelievably, with the superhero image Lucas Moura launching 3 left foot bullets knocking down young Dutch strikers.

Football in 2016 has caught up with the general development trend of society with changes to increase the attractiveness of the king sport.
In 2016, there are two trends in football change: Changing laws and applying technology. After a long period of research and review, here are some of the most prominent adjustments about football law.
Only need 1 person to serve
What seems to be fundamental in football is that football must be kicked forward and is no longer required. Since then, having 2 players for serving is not necessary. So the image of only one player standing in the center circle at the ball delivery will become popular from 2016.
Red card before the match
Now, the referee can withdraw the red card for the player who has committed the wrong behavior even when the match has not started. The team with a player with a red card can still play with 11 people but must be another person.
No red card is required in the penalty area
Previously, every time the team had a player who made a mistake in the penalty area, they often received a “triple” penalty, including Red card for a foul player, the penalty for the opponent and suspension for the player to make a mistake. But FIFA has adjusted. If the referee finds that the player who made a mistake does not deliberately break the law, he will only need to receive a yellow card instead of a red card. Other cases still apply the old law.
Do not stop the ball when penalty kicks
Players can freely change the speed when making a penalty. However, if the player stops at the moment of taking the momentum, the player will be penalized with a yellow card and the penalty will turn into an indirect penalty.
Replace the 4th person in extra time
Striker Alvaro Morata established the history of world football when he came on for Cristiano Ronaldo in the 2016 FIFA Club World Cup final with Kashima Antlers. Morata became the first player to enter the field thanks to the fourth substitution right only in extra time. The new law was discussed by FIFA in March this year and applied for testing at the FIFA Club World Cup 2016.
The World Federation of Football Statistics and Statistics (IFFHS) has announced the list of the 10 best goalkeepers in the world in 2018. According to this list, David de Gea is only ranked 8th in the list of players.
On November 30, IFFHS announced the world’s best goalkeeper award 2018 by 90 leading experts. Accordingly, the Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois suddenly won thanks to the impressive performance in Chelsea shirt and the national team.
In 2018, Thibaut Courtois did not achieve a great title but was still highly appreciated for his stable performance. He contributed to help Belgium win 3rd place in the 2018 World Cup. The score that Thibaut Courtois achieved was 181 points.
The second place belongs to the goalkeeper of the French World Championship team, Hugo Lloris with 109 points. Hugo Lloris is not only an important factor in France’s 2018 World Cup championship but also an indispensable captain of Tottenham Club.
Coming in third place is the legendary goalkeeper – Buffon. Although Buffon did not leave many marks in the past year, he still won a high number of votes to overcome the talented juniors. Other famous goalkeepers like Navas, Oblak, Ter Stegen and Allison are also behind the Italian veteran.
David de Gea
David de Gea is only in eighth place. Another big surprise was that Manchester United’s David de Gea only ranked 8th after Alisson of Liverpool (ranked 7th), Barca’s Ter Stegen (No. 6), Atletico’s Oblak (ranked 5th) and Real’s Navas (on the 4th). Despite excellent performances in the colors of MU and Spain, but the poor performance of the “Red Devils” and the national team may be the cause of David de Gea not winning a high position in the list.
In football, besides good strikers, good defenders, a team that wants to win many victories needs a good goalkeeper. The goalkeeper, with his talent and excellent reflexes, can help the team escape the goals to see the final victory. This article will introduce the top 3 best goalkeepers in the world.
