The legendary former Real Madrid and Spain goalkeeper has named his top five picks for the best goalies in the world.

Real Madrid star Thibaut Courtois tops to Iker Casillas’ list of the world’s top 5 goalkeepers.

The Spanish World Cup and Champions League winner, who spent a remarkable 16 years at Real Madrid, ranks Courtois above shot-stoppers from Manchester City, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, and Bayern Munich as the best of all.

He revealed his list for 433 in the video below.
