To start, you must watch this amazing save by Seattle Sounders goalkeeper Stefan Frei in the MLS Cup final. In just about ever game a keeper has to make at least one big save if their team is going to win the game.
Many times, for goalkeepers to make big saves, they just have to be ready. That might sound simple and silly, but the key to being a great goalkeeper is being in the right position and being ready to make a save.
If you’re a goalkeeper who is rushing off the line too early or not reading the play, then you can never make that big save since you’re out of position. And the key to being ready and in the right position is footwork – if you’re not on your toes and ready to move laterally, then you can’t make the big save.
