King Kahn

Four years ago, while everyone else around me was cheering for Brazil, I was rooting for the underdogs — Germany — and my newfound idol Oliver Kahn.

The Four times German Bundesliga Goalkeeper of the Year was a formidable wall that loomed in front of any opponent’s goal, faltering only during the World Cup finals against Brazil. Despite this he was named FIFA World Player of the Year second to Brazil scorer Ronaldo, the only goalkeeper to be awarded such.

And although he will be playing second to Jehns Lehmann in June, he is still number 1 in my heart.
