Fans around the world have been enjoying a flurry of goals at the World Cup in Brazil but with the tournament now in its knockout phase it is goalkeepers not strikers that have been grabbing most of the headlines.In a tournament that well before the quarterfinal stage exceeded the 145 goals scored in South Africa in 2010, goalkeepers have stolen the limelight with a string of scintillating performances. Neuer played down his performance after the game.So it's no real surprise that in the eight round of 16 games, five man-of-the-match awards went to goalkeepers, an unusual occurrence.He was the only reason they managed to go into extra time before losing 2-1, with Howard earning hugs and pats on the back from the Belgians at the end of the game.His saves were the most ever seen by a goalkeeper in a World Cup since 1966 according to world soccer's governing body FIFA.
