FIFA World Cup

Meet The Only Goalkeeper to Save Four Penalties in the History of the World Cup.

For everything he is done for Croatia at this World Cup, Dominik Livakovic deserves a statue in Croatia. 

Before this tournament, he may not have received much attention, but his match-winning performances in goal have undoubtedly helped him establish a reputation for himself in Qatar. 

The 27-year-old is the main reason Croatia advanced to the World Cup semifinals for the second time in a row, and don't be shocked if he eventually guides the tiny footballing nation to their first World Cup victory.

Livakovic demonstrated his ability to play the big game against one of, if not the clear favorite (Brazil), by pulling off a series of outstanding saves, one of which prevented Rodrygo from scoring in the penalty shootouts. 

Dominik completed 26 passes, had an accuracy rate of 81 percent, had a total of 11 saves in the course of the 120-minute contest, seven of which came from close range, and only gave up one goal. 

After that, Livakovic stopped Rodrygo's penalty kick to become the first and only goalkeeper in World Cup history to make four saves in a penalty shootout.

Currently, this outstanding Goalkeeper is on the roster of Dinamo Zagreb, but based on his early performances, major clubs around Europe may make a move for him as early as January.
