2018 world Cup: goalkeepers, losing the last three finals, played for… Monaco

ЧМ-2018: вратари, проигравшие три последних финала, выступали за… «Монако»

On the eve of the decisive match of the 2018 world Cup TV channel ESPN shared interesting statistics. It turned out that in the last three world Cup against the team, losing in the finals, consistently defended the goalkeeper, in his career which was a period in Monaco.

So, in 2006, France have conceded in a decisive duel the Italians, and the last line of the “tricolor” protected Fabien Barthez (he played for Monaco in 1995–2000). In 2010, the losers of the finals were the Dutch: their goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg played for Monaco on loan in the season of 2014/2015. Finally, the experience of playing for “as Monaco” was the goalkeeper of the national team of Argentina Sergio Romero: in 2014, the South Americans lost the final to the Germans.

By an amazing coincidence, the goalkeeper of the national team of Croatia Danijel subašić (pictured) from 2012 plays just behind Monaco.

Let me remind you that the Croats in the final match of the 2018 world Cup on July 15 in Moscow will compete with the team of France.

Even before the semi-finals of the “FACTS” reported that there is a sign: will play in the final, Croatia and France.
