ABU DHABI, 3rd November / WAM / More than 8 years ago, German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer dazzled the whole world with his performances with his team at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Neuer, 36, played a prominent role in the team’s ascension to the podium of the world title, becoming Germany’s fourth title in the world championship and its first since winning the third title in 1990.
Neuer wrote his name in golden letters among the best goalkeepers in the world, not only for winning this title with the ancient German team, but for the level that the goalkeeper provided over many years, which prompted some to consider him the most prominent and best goalkeeper in the world during the second decade of this century.
Despite the outstanding level provided by Marc-Andre ter Stegen with Barcelona during the past years, Neuer maintained his position in the goalkeeper of the German national team, which will continue in the 2022 World Cup, which may witness his last participation in the World Cup tournaments.
Neuer was very famous as the “Libero goalkeeper” in light of the style of play he presents in matches and tournaments, whether with Bayern Munich or the German national team, where the player used to contribute with the defense line in addressing the attacks of opponents.
Neuer in many situations played the role of third-back, sometimes advancing outside the penalty area to spoil the opponents’ attacks and kicks, which gave his teammates in Bayern and the German national team great confidence.
Neuer was included in the youth teams in Germany before joining the first team for the first time in 2009, and that was before his move to Bayern Munich in 2011.
Neuer proved his worth with both Bayern and the German national team, as he won many titles with Bayern, including the German League title in the past ten seasons in a row, in addition to winning the Champions League twice and both the European Super Cup and the Club World Cup twice.
Neuer also played an important role in most of the distinguished results of the German national team for many years.
Therefore, Neuer’s experience will be one of the most important elements that the German national team depends on in the 2022 World Cup, especially as he has been the captain of the team for years and has leadership talents in addition to giving confidence and reassurance to his teammates.
In addition to his technical and physical brilliance, Noir’s recent statements showed that he is a symbol of challenge and steadfastness, as the player admitted that he had previously suffered from skin cancer and underwent 3 surgeries that did not prevent him from continuing to shine at the club and national level.
