Everyone is excited about the upcoming FIFA world cup and a thrilled to watch players like Messi, Ronaldo, Hazard, De Bryune, Pogba and much more but some top players will be missed sorely because their national teams did not qualify for the FIFA world cup 2018.
Here we are going to take a look at top 5 goalkeepers to miss out on this years FIFA world cup:
1- Gianluigi Buffon: probably the most legendary goalkeeper of all time will not be part of this World Cup is Gianluigi Buffon. he surely will be missed along with his national team Italy who somehow made the mess of their playoff with Denmark.
Not long afterward the defeat to Denmark he announced his retirement from the national team and this year will probably be his last for the Juventus as well.
2- Claudio Bravo: Chile goalkeeper part of their squad who two times won regional national silverware and is part of Manchester City squad. Chile missing out on a world cup berth is a shock to the most football fans but also a loss that world class players like Bravo won’t be part of the FIFA world cup 2018.
3- Asmir Begović: another premier league hundred caps goalkeeper may be at the wrong end of his career but still going strong for his national team who did not qualify for the FIFA world cup.
Bosnia and Herzegovina probably had their best teams in recent times and he was an integral part of it.
4- Tim Howard: He is an American soccer player who captains the MLS club Colorado Rapids and plays for the United States national team as a goalkeeper.
Howard played in the premier league for several years and had hundred of premier league appearances with Everton and Manchester United.
at this moment of his career, he might not be at peak of his career but still a worthy mention in the list.
5- Peter Cech: He is currently playing for Arsenal and regularly plays for the Czech Republic national team.
A premier league legend just became 1st player ever to keep 200 clean sheets is not going to Russia to play for FIFA world cup
