    I think Bolivia's Gato Fernandez should get an honorable mention after the show he put on in Copa America.

    At this moment, in Venezuela everybody is saying that the best goalkeeper is "Javier Toyo" goalie of CaracasFC.
    These are a few things that they said from the last game:

    Juego Caracas 2-1 UAMaracaibo

    http://www.todofutbol.net/web/primera/apertura2004/reportes/jornada03/cfc-mbo.htm

    "... pero la muralla en la que se convirtió Javier Toyo fue insalvable para los azulgranas, que terminaron cayendo 2-1 frente al Rojo en el Brígido Iriarte.

    ... sin embargo, la mejor la tuvo Beraza. Un penal provocado por una mano del brasileño Giovanni fue cobrado por el argentino del Maracaibo. Sin embargo, aquí empezó la noche inspirada de Toyo, que tapó el disparo del sureño con la zurda, y se vistió de héroe. Y aún faltaba.

    ... el equipo (UA-Maracaibo) se acomodó mejor en la cancha, e intentó acorralar a la defensa local. Sin embargo, Toyo respondió a todas y cada una de las exigencias del reto. Tagliani lo probó, y Toyo ahogó el grito del argentino.

    Y como esas, varias más. Miliki, Maldonado y Beraza probaron al meta rojo, pero éste no falló, ni una sola vez."

    nobody has mentioned Jose Ceballos of Ecuador, he was a huge part of ecuador's success in gettting to Japan/Korea 2002...i would rather have him than El Pato, Dida, Henao, Julio Cesar or Mondragon...the only one i see as better than Ceballos is Cordoba.

    amen! this guy shut out brazil's A team, kept them at 1 when ecuador visit brazil last year, and argentina only managed 1 against him. this guy is consistant as consistant can be, has a great mentality and excellent instincts! doesn't get the attention some others do coz he plays in ecuador, but i would rank Cevallos higher than most keepers fo sho!

    yup, Cordoba kept a shut out (0 - 0) in Colombia against Brazil in the last qualifyers, and we lost 1 - 0 in Brazil, goal at the last minute...:(

    I haven't seen him play in a long time, I imagine his level is still way down..........

    Hay tres arqueros colombianos y falta el mejor de esa nacionalidad: Miguel Calero. El mejor arquero del campeonato mexicano y titular de su selección es, para mí, el mejor arquero de Suramérica.

    El Pato Abbondancieri tapa en la Selección Argentina ante la falta de arqueros de categoría. A mí nadie me mete en la cabeza que juntando a Burgos, Bonano y Cavallero se hace un arquero de alto nivel.

    El unico arquero que puede hacerle competencia a Calero hoy en Suramerica es Dida. Aun asi, no lo convocan a la seleccion brasilera, extraño. Si alguien vio el partido de Cienciano y Boca anoche, veran lo malo que es el Pato, solo le hizo vista y luego levanto las manos en el gol del Cienciano, quejandose, al mono de la pila, dirian en Bogota. Cavallero perdio la titular de la seleccion con Abondanzieri, que mas se puede decir? Burgos podria dedicarse al rock y nadie lo extrañaria en el mundo del balompie, a excepcion de los delanteros contrarios, es un arquero que "no usa las manos" escuche en concepto de un comentarista el otro dia!!!!!

    Jose Cevallos was an amazing goalkeeper i can't believe they did not add him to the poll, Jose F Cevallos was the main reason Barcelona S.C made it to the final of the 1998 Copa Libertadores he kept Barcelona alive during the semifinal game between Cerro Porteno plus it went to a penalty shootout and Barcelona won because of him. :)

    All-time greats:

    1. Roque Maspoli (Maracanazo! Enough said)
    2. Chilavert (Who doesn't hate this guy? I'm pretty sure the only ones who love him are the Velez faithful, Bianchi, and Paraguayans. I hate his azz! But you have to recognise the best and this guy was the shiat. He scored penalties, he stopped penalties, he scored free kicks. Just an amazing keeper)
    3. "Pato" Fillol (A great one. World Cup Winner with Argentina in '78. He's also doing a decent job coaching Racing Club)
    4. Gilmar (tall motherfuker. great keeper)
    5. Taffarel (Great one with Brazil. World Cup Winner in '94 where he stopped a penalty in the final. He was a great one with Atletico Mineiro where they also won the Copa Conmebol)
    6. Higuita (He was horrible with defence but his craziness, his dribbling outside the box, and his amazing moves including the scorpion are trademark. Just for that he deserves a spot)

    The ones that were great but not all-time greats:

    1. "Loco" Gatti (Great one with boca. fan favourites of the xeneizes. Also crazy out of the box, dribbling, and amazing moves kind of guy)
    2. Goycochea (penalty god in WC Italy '90)
    3. Nery Pumpido (WC winner in '86. Good keeper with good hands)
    4. Siboldi (Good uruguayan goalkeeper)
    5. Navarro Montoya (Safe and reliable keeper)
    6. Nelson Tapia (Little chilean midget can fly! He is a reliable keeper)
    7. Carlos Trucco (Let's not forget about the bolivians just because they are bolivians people! Great keeper. He was a safe bet in the goal)
    8. Dudamel (Good keeper. This venezuelan had something in him. He was the leader of the national team. If it wasn't for how sucky Venezuela were at the time, he would've been even better. He was one of the few that played outside of Venezuela. Spain if i'm not mistaken)

    The recent ones that can be great:

    1. Abbondanzieri
    2. Cordoba
    3. Dida
    4. Calero
    5. Carini
    6. Zevallos
    7. Henao
    8. Constanzo
    9. Lux
    10. Mondragon
    11. Munua
    12. Julio Cesar

    Dida...AC Milan #1...no doubt...

    He also had to beat out a great keeper for the starting job in Abbiati...

    El Pato # 1

    LOL!!

    I don't want to be rude but he is no where near top 5 material.Pablo Cavallero
    is better keeper than El Pato.

    I don't see anything else that I don't agree with your list except that I'll rank Dida #1 right now.

    The last list wasn't in order of top keepers so you are right. Dida is #1 right now.

    Re: Justo Villar

    you know what, I was reading that theres the chance of him coming back, all depends on his injury, I don't know if Reinaldo would contemplate that idea, he is very serious about his dicisions. You know that only Oscar at his best would dethrone Calero.
