Emiliano Martinez was an important part of the reason why Argentina won the World Cup in Qatar. The goalkeeper for Aston Villa has been nominated for the FIFA Best Goalkeeper Award for 2022 because of how well he has played.
Aside from Martinez, Alison Becker from Brazil, Yassin Bouno from Morocco, Thibaut Courtois from Belgium, Dominik Livakovic from Croatia, Mike Mike Menion from France, and Manuel Neuer from Bayern Munich are also in the running for best goalkeeper this year.
FIFA will choose the winner based on how these seven goalkeepers did from August 8, 2021, to December 18, 2022. The winner will be announced on February 27, 2020. FIFA will choose the best goalkeeper based on how well they play for their country and their club. Edouard Mendy, who plays goalkeeper for both Senegal and Chelsea, won the best goalkeeper award from football’s governing body in the beginning of last year.
This time, the Argentine goalkeeper is in the lead for best goalkeeper. In their report, FIFA said that there is no doubt that Martinez was a big reason why Argentina won the World Cup.
Kolo Mwani took a shot at Albiles in the 123rd minute of the World Cup final against France, but he blocked it. This kept Albiles from losing. FIFA thinks this is the most important save in the history of football. Because this one save made it possible for them to finally win the World Cup.
