Goalkeeper: Joe Hart

Football News

Age Now: 26

Age Then: 31

Even though from past experiences in the last ten years England have had to switch goalkeepers due to the stupid mistakes which goalies such as Robert Green, Paul Robinson and Scott Carson have made in the past. Even at 31, I still think that Joe Hart will be the first choice keeper even with the competition he could have against Fraser Forster, John Ruddy and Jack Butland. 

Hart has played 38 times for England, but recently over the last year his performances have dropped and there has been a lot of talk about him being replaced by Forster. Hart has been replaced in the Manchester City team by Costel Pantilimon momentarily but it could turn permanent. 

Hart was named the PFA goalkeeper of the year in 2012 and he did deserve it. By 2018, he should still be England's number one.
