World Cup 2014, Different Story of Two Goalkeeper in Soccer

I will not talk about Manchester United players or ex-players who take part in World Cup this time. What caught my attention this time is the different story of goalkeeper play this time. The match between Brazil versus Mexico and South Korea against Russia which are great and entertaining show the differents. 

Each position in  soccer is essential however a goalkeeper position is even more crucial. Goalkeeper is the last defense of soccer team to make the defender and attacking player feel save when they searching for outcome in a match. Guillermo Ochoa the Mexican goalkeeper manage to maintain his calm in waves of Brazilian attack. Neymar has tried to defeat him twice and Brazilian captain got his chance too in the last minute. But the Mexican goalie remain calm and he was always in good position to block any strikes from Brazilian players. A draw is fair result for both team although Brazilian national soccer wish a goal will be alright. Guillermo Ochoa then became the Man of The Match in this game.

Contrary to Ochoa, Russian goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev make himself in trouble when South Korean midfield able to score in the first minute because of his own error. His blunder to not catch the ball cleanly could cost his team suffer defeat against the Asian soccer team. Fortunately Russia could manage to draw level before the match is over. The same result of draw in those matches came from the same position in soccer, goalkeeper.

A player cannot maintain the way he plays in the top level for a long time. There are some bad time for them that can cause errors or even worse disasters to his soccer team. When he could stop any attack from opponent he would be consider as hero but if one mistakes that lead the opponents scored pressure began weighing in his shoulder. Moreover the World Cup is a place where qualities of players gathers without the will to win the game and passion to play soccer they will never be on top.
