He has good clearance, reflexes on the line, rarely out of position, good with both feet, defends the goal well with his hands and feet etc. He is easily in the top 5-10 GK in the world. To say that he is not is delusional.
Germany knocks out France 1-0
Man, France screwed the pooch in this one. Though Germany had the run of play in the 1st half, France still had their chances. France then dominated much of the 2nd half. True, you need to get desperate at the end, but Deschamps, why in the heck did you take out both Cabaye and Valbuena? They were the ones getting the ball forward. Throwing on extra strikers but taking away their service killed their chances. Stupid, stupid move.
