Who Is The Best Goalkeeper In The World 2021/2022?
The debate about who is the best goalkeeper in the world 2021/22 has been opened again.
The season long debate who is the best goalkeeper in the world 2021/22? is back again following Edouard Mendy’s AFCON 2021 heroics.
The Senegalese goalkeeper saved a crucial penalty in the AFCON 2021 finals to help his country win the trophy.
This trophy happens to be his 3rd trophy in under a year having helped Chelsea to win the 2020/21 Uefa Champions League in May 2021 and the Uefa Super Cup in August 2021.

Starting 2022 like how he ended 2021, the Chelsea and Senegal number 1 is on the run to win the best goalkeeper in the world 2021/22.
One of his biggest competition is Italy’s number 1 Donnarumma who won the Uefa Europe’s goalkeeper of the year in 2021.
The Italian also won the best player at the Euro 2020 where he helped Italy win the trophy.
Now with PSG with star studded cast like Neymar, Mbappé and Messi his chances of winning more trophies to aid his individual award claims is higher than when he was with AC Milan.
