One of the most important positions in football is goalkeeper, also known as keeper or goalie.
It is the sport's most specialized position.
The primary responsibility of the goalkeeper is to deter the opposing team from scoring (moving the ball over the defended goal-line within the frame of the goal).
The goalkeeper accomplishes this by jumping into the direction of the ball and then catching or intercepting it.
The goalkeeper's job isn't what it used to be, with modern goalkeepers being expected to initiate plays as well as provide the final line of defense.
The back-pass rule prohibits goalkeepers from receiving direct passes from teammates.
Goalkeepers usually kick goals and provide instructions to their defense during corner kicks, direct and indirect free kicks, and marking.
It's also said that getting a reliable goaltender will win you many points per season.
