- When: Nov. 20 – Dec. 18
Why Alisson is a lock to win the Golden Glove
The pre-World Cup favorite to win the Golden Glove has played fantastic soccer. Alisson has yielded a single goal in four matches.
Not only that, but Alisson also has 5 saves and there’s no doubt that Brazil is one of the best teams left at the World Cup. The pre-WC chalk has a lot of things going his way.
Why Alisson isn’t a lock to win the Golden Glove
Although Alisson has a lot of things going his way, Brazil’s keeper hasn’t had a lot of chances to prove he deserves the Golden Glove. So, yes, Alisson scored 5 saves against South Korea.
But he also yielded a goal. The Liverpool keeper also didn’t produce any saves in wins against Serbia and Switzerland.
Goalies that can win the Golden Glove outside of Alisson
The following keepers have real shots of upsetting Alisson and taking the Golden Glove.
Dominik Livakovic – Croatia
Has allowed 2 goals in regulation and blocked 3 Japan penalty kicks in Croatia’s Round of 16 win. Also, the Dinamo Zagreb keeper has 9 saves in four WC matches.
If Livakovic produces a clean sheet versus Brazil, and Croatia upsets Brazil, Dominik could be in line for the Golden Glove.
Yassine Bounou – Morocco
Sevilla’s goalie has allowed 0 scores in three matches. However, Bounou has just 2 saves in four matches.
But Bounou blocked the first 3 Spanish penalty kicks in Morocco’s amazing victory over the Spaniards. If Morocco continues to surprise, Bounou could put the Glove in the bag.
Jordan Pickford – England
Pickford has had nothing but clean sheets since allowing Iran to score a couple of goals in England’s first match.
Pickford has 4 saves. He has yet to produce an impressive game on the level of Bounou or Livakovic, but if England moves on from France, heck, if the English win the World Cup, it could be difficult to keep the Golden Glove off Jordan’s hand.
Hugo Lloris – France
When not playing for France, Lloris spends time in the net for Tottenham. Lloris has yielded 3 goals in four matches with just 2 saves.
But although the resume isn’t there yet, Hugo will have to provide fantastic saves in the quarterfinals because France takes on England.
Then if the French beat the English, Lloris is likely to have to get saves versus high-scoring Portugal. So Lloris will have plenty of chances to prove he deserves the Golden Glove.
