One of the most vital positions in football is goalkeeper, sometimes known as keeper or goalie. It is the sport’s most specialized position.
Role of Goalkeeper
The major responsibility of the goalkeeper is to keep the opposing team from scoring (moving the ball over the defended goal-line within the frame of the goal). The goalie accomplishes this by moving into the course of the ball and either catching it or redirecting it away from the goal line. Goalkeepers can use their hands inside the penalty area, making them the only players on the pitch who can handle the ball (outside throw-ins). Goalkeepers distinguish themselves from their teammates by wearing distinct colored uniforms.
