- Claudio Bravo (Chile, FC Barcelona)
Gianluigi Buffon (Italy, Juventus)
Iker Casillas (Spain, Real Madrid)
Thibaut Courtois (Belgium, Chelsea)
Manuel Neuer (Germany, FC Bayern Munich)
Five players are nominated for the FIFA 15 Ultimate Team TOTY Goalkeepers
The five goalkeepers on the 2014 shortlist are from the same five clubs as the five goalkeepers on the 2013 shortlist: FC Barcelona, FC Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Juventus and Real Madrid.
The favourite to be in the FIFA 15 Ultimate TOTY is Manuel Neuer. It was him who was in the Team of the Year of the last year. Neuer won the 2014 FIFA World Cup with Germany as well as the Golden Glove award for being the best goalkeeper in the tournament and is considered one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
Iker Casillas was the World XI goalkeeper for five straight years: from 2008 until 2012. He is considered to be one of the finest goalkeepers of all time. Casillas is one of a very select group of players who have won all major club and national championship titles. He is also the goalkeeper with most appearances of all time in the UEFA Champions League and the most capped player of all time for the Spanish national team.
Gianluigi Buffon was the World XI goalkeeper in 2006 and 2007. He is the only goalkeeper to appear on all ten World XI shortlists since the introduction of the World XI in 2005. Next to Gianluigi Buffon, five players have always been mentioned on the shortlist until last year: Ashley Cole, Didier Drogba, Andrea Pirlo, Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney. He is currently the most expensive goalkeeper of all time following his £32.6m transfer from Parma to Juventus in 2001. He is also the only goalkeeper to have won the UEFA Club Footballer of the Year Award.
Petr Cech and Víctor Valdés lost their place on the shortlist to Claudio Bravo and Thibaut Courtois, which make their debut on the 55-men shortlist.Check the video on the top of this page to know more about the FIFA 15 Ultimate Team TOTY Goalkeepers Shortlist.
