    Who is the best goalkeeper in world football at present?

    I would say the best keeper in the World for me is Gianluigi Buffon.
    For many years he has been absolutely fantastic, it’s rare for a keeper to establish himself as a first team player so young and to maintain his fantastic form for so many years is amazing.

    Iker Casillas would be a close second for me, again he has been at the top of his game for so long and it’s extremely impressive that he has been one of the constants of the Real Madrid team over the years when so many people have come and gone in the Galacticos era. Iker and Raul are proof that youth systems can provide great results even when the teams play at such a high level.

    If Petr Cech hadn’t had the awful head injury, my list may be a little different. He is still good but before his injury you could have said he was unbeatable.

    One to watch out for in the future Igor Akinfeev, he looks very promising and for me heralds a generation of eastern European players who will dominate the modern game. You just have to look at the impact Arshavin is having at Arsenal just now.

    I'd go for Iker Casillas, as he often has to sit behind a particularly ropey defence as well.

    I think Cech looked shaky even before his freak injury, just a little indecisive at times but a great shot stopper. 

    Shay Given, if he happened to be Italian or Spanish, would probably be held in much higher regard than he is - I think he is definitely top 5.

    It has to be Gianluigi Buffon. He has been so consistently outstanding that every other 'keeper is measured by him, and is having yet another fantastic season.

    I reckon Buffon is probably the best but before his injury I would probably say Cech was second or even third!

    Buffon is definitely it, Cech comes second and Casillas third-- and of course my favorite Julio Cesar, 4th -- Brazil team for the 2010 World Cup

    At present it has to be Julio Cesar, but I would still pick Buffon in a pressure situation.

    Iker Casillas, for me no doubts about smile He was amazing during the World Cup, especially when you think about all the pressure he was under with the whole girlfriend "scandal".

    A couple of years ago I would have said Cech, but now I think Pepe Reina of Liverpool

    Iker Casillas, the World Cup-winning Spanish goalkeeper! He plays for Real Madrid! He's the Best! I don't think anyone could be better. He is just awesome!

    If you compare all the past records of various goalkeepers, then only one name comes up and that is " MANUEL NEUER ". No doubt he is the world's best goalkeeper at the moment.
    Adding to his achievements, he was one of the 3 nominees for Ballon Dor Award 2015. After NEUER comes IKER CASILLAS.  Then comes Juventus's BUFFON.
    So concluding, here are my top 3:
         1. Manuel Neuer (FC Bayern)
         2. Iker Casillas  (Real Madrid)
         3. Buffon  (Juventus)
