The best goalkeeper in history: 90 years since the birth of Lev Yashin
October 22 marks the 90th anniversary of the birth of the legendary football goalkeeper Lev Yashin. During his long career, he managed to become the Olympic champion and European champion, and also won the USSR championship five times. In 1963, a native of Moscow became the first (and remains the last at the moment) goalkeeper to receive the Golden Ball. He was also recognized by FIFA as the best goalkeeper of the 20th century.
