Goalkeeper

The goalkeeper defends the team’s goal and is the only player who can use the hands to play the ball, although this is restricted to within the penalty area. The objective of the goalkeeper is to secure that the ball does not penetrate the goalline. The goalkeeper must wear a different colored gear from all other players, referee, and assistant referees to avoid confusion. From his favorable vantage point the goalkeeper organizes the team in defense.
