We've heard a lot about goalkeeper clangers so far during this World Cup, but there have been at least as many brilliant performances as dreadful errors. Rob Green's mistake will, of course, live in infamy, and unfortunately for him, he wasn't given the chance to redeem himself. But other keepers are using the world stage to forge or enhance their reputations. From the spectacular (Enyeama, Khune) to the solid (Howard, Schwarzer, Sorenson) , we've seen multiple displays of calm, assured goalkeeping.
The Jabulani ball seems to be causing more problems for outfield players than for goalkeepers so far. Free kicks are sailing high, crosses are straying out for throw ins, and even simple passes seem to be beyond the capabilities of many players - or, in the cases of France and England, entire teams.
And hey, how about those special black and yellow World Cup Uhlsport gloves? Sweet baby Jane, I want a pair.
