Euro 2012 – the stats say one thing but you said another

So we have heard who UEFA think were the best Goalkeepers in the tournament and we have seen Ireland’s Shay Given (http://wp.me/p27nBU-fW) and Spain’s Iker Casillas (http://wp.me/p27nBU-g5) as the best from the Stats, with Iker outshining them all by collecting 5 awards in the stats, but lets face it the award that really matters is the one voted on by you, my blog readers… and this time it wasn’t won by Iker Casillas.

You voted the Best Goalkeeper of the Tournament as Germany’s Manuel Neuer

A great choice by you all, unlucky twice in 2012 , missing out on penalties in the Champions League for Bayern Munich against Chelsea and then seeing an inspired Mario Balotelli put two goals past him so that Italy progressed to the final. Not many Goalkeepers would have coped with Mario that day – he was quite super… But then again so was Manuel through out the tournament. So congratulations Manuel Neuer!

The final results:

  Player Country Percentage of Votes
1st Manuel Neuer Germany 25%
2nd = Iker Casillas Spain 19%
2nd = Rui Patricio Portugal 19%
4th = Gianluigi Buffon Italy 13%
4th = Joe Hart England 13%
4th = Hugo Lloris France 13%
