4. Zack Steffen (Fortuna Dusseldorf)
From the days of Brad Friedel and Kasey Keller to more recent standouts like Tim Howard, United States have a rich history of producing excellent goalkeepers and Zack Steffen looks to be the next in line. Having signed for English giants Manchester City back in June, Steffen was immediately loaned out to Fortuna and has wasted no time in showcasing his ability.
He made an amazing ten saves on debut as Fortuna claimed a surprise 3-1 win over Werder Bremen, and has continued to impress with his shot stopping and maturity beyond his 24 years.
With his powerful build, Steffen has what it takes to succeed in Europe’s top leagues and, while he could even one day return to challenge for the No. 1 spot at City, Fortuna will be very happy to call him theirs for now.
