One of the most demanding and scariest jobs in World Cup football is playing in goal, or the ‘onion bag’ as players refer to it. Your every move is, quite literally, being watched and evaluated by billions of armchair soccer ‘experts’, not to mention your manager, fans and team mates. Walter Zenga holds the record of longest unbeaten goalkeeper in World Cup history and played 517 minutes – almost six games – without letting in a single goal! Take the quiz below and find out if you could be a world class goalie!
Once, when he was taking a free kick, the stadium announcer was so confident this super-star would score that he announced that he was about to put away his 1,000th goal. And of course, he did! This football legend started playing football at the age of eight with a youth team in 1954, against the wishes of his dad, who disliked football. He won two European footballer-of the- year awards, three Euro Cups and captained his country’s team in their World Cup victory in 1974. He also invented the position of ‘sweeper’ in modern football.

Crafty goalkeepers may attempt to distract you by talking to you, and moving around (waggling their bottoms at you, that sort of thing). Stay focussed on what you are about to do. Do not start thinking about where you’re going for your holidays, how big ‘Space’ is, or if you did your maths homework.
