    Keeper of the Tournament?

    Is it a straight battle between Courtois and Pickford, with an honourable mention for Lloris? Ochoa might have been in contention earlier in the tournament, but rather blotted his copybook with his performance against Sweden.

    Subašić is out of the question?

            Best game by a GK in this tournament was Lloris' semifinal against Belgium. He came through went it really mattered.

            Pickford wasn't very good in the quarterfinal.

                The answer is always Gigi Buffon

                    Pickford did well, but what he saved were basically regulation saves. Courtois, Subasic and Lloris performed extraordinarily well, with some 10/10 performances. My pick of the three is Subasic -- some superb saves; playing heroically with a crocked leg against Russia, plus the penalty shoot-out saves.

                      Has Subasics save from Harry Kane, when the latter hit the post, an almost impossible save to see in real time, been mentioned? Got to be save of the tournament, given the the positioning and the game context.

                        Yeah, it's been discussed on the AEB thread

                          Subasic should have had two yellows in the shootout v Denmark, and his team would have been knocked out in the round of 16.

                          But cheating in the shootout is a standard requirement for a keeper, so I guess that one's on the officials.

                            All the keepers are doing it. Can't blame them if the refs are doing nothing about it.

                              Kasper Schmeichel was an even worse offender. It would have been down to the keeping skills of whichever field player each side would have chosen to occupy the goal.

                                            I suppose if you're going to have a brainfart, do it when you're 4-1 up.

                                              My pick would be Essam El-Hadary of Egypt. 45 years old and he made the penalty save of the tournament.

                                                  Subasic had a very poor final, he was nowhere near the last two goals, both of which were struck from long range and neither had particularly lethal accuracy. They were not placed near the post. He should have at least been with a meter of both shots, especially Mbappe's. I think his thigh injury impaired his mobility, perhaps the strikers might have been instructed to test him, maybe even favoring the right side?

                                                  This was a pretty big mistake from the Croat manager, you have to go with your backup if your starting keeper is not close to 100%.
