Who will be the best goalkeeper of the 2022 World Cup?

When the 2022 Football World Cup takes place in Qatar from 20 November to 18 December 2022, football fans will once again be looking to the big stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappé.

Goalkeepers so often fade into the background at big finals, but they are the ones who can keep their team in the game with their first-class parades. When it comes to the 2022 World Cup knockout phase, they could become a big star in the penalty shoot-out at the latest.

But which goalkeeper manages to play his way into the limelight at the World Cup in Qatar and is ultimately named the best goalkeeper of the tournament? On this page we introduce you to our five top favorites for the Golden Glove.

Alisson Becker - Brazil ??

The Brazilian national team is one of the bookmakers' top favourites at the 2022 World Cup bets and accordingly it is not surprising that their number 1 in goal Alisson Becker has to be mentioned as a candidate for the best goalkeeper of the tournament.

The regular goalkeeper of Liverpool FC took part in a World Cup with the Selecao for the first time at the 2018 World Cup and also showed great parades there, but had to admit defeat in the quarter-finals Belgium with 2:1.

Should Brazil do better at the finals in Qatar and perhaps even reach the 2022 World Cup final, then Alisson Becker is a hot contender for the award as the best goalkeeper of the tournament.

Hugo Lloris - France ??

Tottenham keeper Hugo Lloris will compete with the French national team as defending champions at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. In Russia, with his brilliant parades, he played a significant role in France's second World Cup title after 1998. With well over 100 international caps, Lloris is not only the record goalkeeper of "Les Bleus", but has also captained his team since Euro 2012.

For Lloris, who will be 35 years old at the World Cup finals, the tournament in Qatar may be the last major event. In total, he took part in a whopping seven major events in the France jersey, including four World Cups and three European Championships.

His first major tournament was the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, but there was a big disagreement with the then head coach Raymond Domenech and the Equipe Tricolore had to travel home after the preliminary round.

Thibaut Courtois - Belgium ??

When it comes to the question of the best goalkeeper of the World Cup, Thibaut is Courtois' current title holder. The number 1 of the Belgian national team won the award as the best goalkeeper of the tournament at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. In the end, the Red Devils missed out on reaching the final, but were able to prevail 2-0 against England in the match for 3rd place. In seven games, Courtois conceded only four goals.

After Belgium is also one of the favourites for the 2022 World Cup finals in Qatar, regular goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is again one of the hottest contenders for the title of best goalkeeper of the 2022 World Cup. The 30-year-old keeper has been guarding the Belgian national team's goal since he was 19.

At club level, the world goalkeeper of 2018 has already celebrated numerous successes with various top clubs. With Atletico Madrid he was crowned Spanish champion, cup winner and Europa League winner, with Chelsea he won the Premier League twice and the FA Cup once. With his current club Real Madrid, the 1.99-meter-tall goalie also won the Spanish championship and became club world champion in 2018.

Manuel Neuer - Germany ??

The long-standing DFB national goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has been the number 1 goal scorer for the German national team since the 2010 World Cup. The DFB and Bayern captain has long been one of the best goalkeepers in the world.

At the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Neuer will therefore guard the goal of the German national team. Above all, his playful quality with his foot on the ball distinguishes the multiple World Goalkeeper of the Year, but also on the line the keeper shows again and again an incredible responsiveness.

As with Lloris, Manuel Neuer could be in a German World Cup squad for the last time at the finals in Qatar. Born in Gelsenkirchen, he is already 36 years old at the 2022 World Cup and could then hang up his football boots in the national team. But it is also quite possible that the multiple Champions League winner will contest the Euro 2024 in Germany as the last big highlight in his football career.

Unai Simon - Spain ??

Last but not least, we also include Spanish national goalkeeper Unai Simon in our list of favorites for the best goalkeeper of the 2022 World Cup. The successor of goalkeeping legend Iker Casillas and David de Gea have so far been denied great success in the Spain jersey.

The number 1 of Athletic Bilbao was on board for the first time at the Euro 2021 at a major event with the Furia Roja, but attracted attention there with some mistakes. There, however, was only in the semi-finals after a defeat in the penalty shoot-out against Italy end.

Also at the World Cup 2022 you have to reckon with Spain again. If Unai manages to remain error-free this time and to be there for the Furia Roja in the decisive moments such as the penalty shoot-out, he could possibly end up crowning himself World Cup winner for the first time in his career (watch the Spain World Cup 2022 squad here).
