Just one shot on goal can be the difference between winning and losing. Therefore, as a goalkeeper, you will want to maximize as much as possible your chances of keeping a clean sheet. If you do not concede any goals during the course of a game, you have done your job. The role of scoring goals is up to your outfield teammates who have most of the control over this outcome.
