After the heroic saves in the penalty shootout against Denmark, Danijel Subasic is placed at 5/1 – 6.00 to lift the World Cup Golden Glove 2018. This is quite normal, considering the fact that keepers like Manuel Neuer and David De Gea who recently won the Premier League Golden Glove 2017-2018 are out of the tournament already.
World Cup Golden Glove: England
Jordan Pickford is now also in competition to be the Golden Glove winner. He managed a very important save in the penalty shootout against Columbia and helped England to go through to the quarterfinals. This was very important for his confidence as England have been known as the team that always loses penalty shootouts as it has happened tons of times in the past. Bookmakers have Pickford at 9/2 – 5.50 to win this prestigious award.
World Cup Golden Glove: Brazil
France’s Hugo Lloris, on the other hand, shouldn’t be this high up in the line of contenders for the Golden Glove. His performances have been sketchy during the whole year for Tottenham in the Premier League where he conceded 35 goals in 36 games and made 5 errors that lead to an opposition goal. He has had blunders for the national team as well, which was seen in the last friendly against the USA where they scored because of his mistake.
World Cup Golden Glove: France
However, the quality of the French squad has helped them go past Argentina and qualify for the quarterfinals. This means that Lloris indeed has a chance to win the Golden Glove. At the moment the odds for Lloris winning the Golden Glove are 11/2 – 6.50. He has certainly done his best at the FIFA Club World Cup even though he conceded three goals against Argentina.
World Cup Golden Glove: Belgium
Belgium’s Thibaut Courtois also makes this list as Belgium will try to go past Brazil in the quarter-finals stage. He couldn’t do much against the two screamers that Japan scored in the game where Belgium managed to come back and win after a 2-0 deficit. However, he will surely be at his best against Brazil because that game will most likely be decided by goalkeepers saves. Bookmakers
World Cup Golden Glove: Brazil
Last but not least, we have Alisson Becker who is definitely “The” Goalkeeper everyone will be looking at during the football World Cup. He had such an amazing season with AS Roma and did an amazing job during Brazil’s World Cup qualifiers where they conceded only 11 goals in 18 games. This is how he cemented his place as the first choice goalkeeper, even though Man. City’s Ederson is a fantastic goalkeeper as well.
Even though he didn’t have a lot of work in the World Cup groups’ stage, Allison still only conceded one goal. He will definitely come against stronger opposition in the quarterfinals and in the rest of the World Cup fixtures. However, stats are on his side as he has only conceded one goal in the whole tournament so far. We strongly believe that Allison is a strong contender for the Golden Glove award and bookmakers are backing him at 5/2 – 3.50.
This time bookmakers were very close when it came to predicting who will win the Golden Glove award. Belgium’s Thibaut Courtois was one of the favourites and in the end, he really won the award. His main competition came from Hugo Lloris who had some amazing saves for France all the way to the final. We could all agree that if it wasn’t for that silly goal he conceded in the final, Lloris would have been the one lifting this personal trophy. Nevertheless, Courtois had some, out of the world saves, especially in the match against Brazil which took Belgium to the semi-final.
Ultimately Belgium finished third and Courtois totally deserved this prestigious award.
