Brad Guzan only has one save on this countdown, but the Aston Villa goalkeeper had a number of highlights beyond his penalty kick stop en route to a 1-0 win Saturday at Norwich City.
Consider that highlight number six on this week’s countdown – the save will be included if you order the director’s cut. In its place, this week’s list of the best stops in the Premier League includes contributions from West Ham’s Jussi Jääskeläinen, Southampton’s Artur Buroc, Stoke City’s Asmir Begovic, Fulham’s David Stockdale … and of course Brad Guzan, who posted his first clean sheet in 27 starts.
Die Mannschaft fell to Mexico in their opening match, with El Tri carving up the German midfield on the counter. Now, Joachim Low has had ample time to make the adjustments needed to go for victory as the Germans take on Sweden as they chase a spot in the knockout stages among Group F.
Meanwhile, Mexico looks to prove they’re not a one-hit wonder as they take on South Korea in Rostov. Juan Carlos Osorio has received plenty of praise – and rightly so – for his tactics in the upset victory, and that leaves El Tri with a chance to clinch a spot in the knockout stage with a win.
Before all that Group F craziness, Belgium takes the field in the morning against Tunisia as they look to follow up its comprehensive 3-0 victory over Panama in the opening round. A victory for the Red Devils would not only book a place in the knockout round, but also eliminate Tunisia from contention.
