Khune Named Among Likes Of Buffon & De Gea As World's Best Keepers

Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has, for years, been regarded as one of Africa's finest shot-stoppers due to his consistent performances for both club and country. Nonetheless, a US-based website has now named Khune among the best in the world. Did you see it?

Ranker, a website based in California, recently named Khune among 31 of the best shot-stoppers in the world, along with the likes of Gianluigi Buffon, David de Gea and Manuel Neuer.

The website allows users to vote, giving readers the option to stipulate whether each goalkeeper should be ranked in a higher or lower position.

Khune was in eighth spot (at the time of writing), between Kasper Schmeichel and Mexico stopper Guillermo Ochoa.

Check it out!

Khune responded to the news with this tweet:

Do you think Khune is one of the best goalkeepers in the world?
