The listening doesn't difficult

The goalkeeper have the most difficult job on the pitch, because he must to sto other team scorring a goal

The greatest save I ever seen made Olexandr Shovkovskiy in the match bu Ukraine against Switzerland on the World Cup 2006

I think, Manuel Neuer the best goalkeeper in the world

The listening was a bit difficult, I believe with the time and the practise I can improve.

The goalkeeper has an important responsability, because he has that stop the score of the other team.

The greatest save I've ever seen was the of Franco Armani (goalkeeper of Atletico Nacional of Colombia) in the quarter-finals of Libertadores Cup 2016 against Rosario Central of Argentina.

The best goalkeeper in the world in this moment is Buffon.

I started enjoy football, when my son started to train in this kind of sport. Before that I didn't understand what sportsmen do on the pitch and why all of them tray to catch one ball. But now I understand this sport. I know - sportsmen should use their brain if they want to win the game. My son is goalkeeper and I think it is very difficult job on the pitch because sometimes goalkeeper is "alone" and always he should be very brave and confident when he stay in front of the striker. My best goalkeeper is only 13 years old.
This site is usefull for me. I improve my English and I find out about football. My best regards to The Premier Skills English Team.

Iker casillas is my favourite goalkeeper and I have seen so many incradible saves from him.

It was easy to listening, i really like the goalkeeper telling about his experience. The goalkeeper is the most difficult job, because when full-back/center back can't defend the others team striker, goalkeeper is the one who should save the ball.
I though the best goalkeeper in the world is Gianlugi Buffon, because I like him.

Hi Nur_Hayati

Thanks for your message and welcome to Premier Skills English! Buffon has had a great career with Juventus and Italy. I think De Gea at Man Utd and Neuer at Bayern Munich are also very good goalkeepers.

Easy listening finally.
The goalkeeper job is particular because errors are not admitted and the success of his team depends more 30 % on him.
The most famous save for me is Bank's one on a header of Pele in the World cup 1966. I was passing my bac exam at the time and I still prefer this one to others because the goalkeeper and the header were so smart.
Yachine is my best. Now Loris is my favourite.

Tips

Become a better listener

Remember! You don't need to hear every word, to understand everything in the listening.

If there is a word that you can't hear, think about the rest of the sentence and guess what the word is.

You will be surprised how much you can undersstand, even when you don't hear everything.
