The Golden Glove Award is given to the best goalkeeper in each FIFA World Cup final. The best goalkeepers have been awarded since the first World Cup in 1930.
From 1930 to 1990, the tournament’s All-Star team named one goalkeeper (unless two were named in 1990). This is the name used in the list of top goalkeepers for the contest below.
A special award given to the best goalkeeper at the World Cup, the Lev Yashin Award, was introduced in 1994. The award is honored by the late legendary Russian goalkeeper Lev Yashin. In 2010, the Best Goalkeeper Award was renamed the Golden Glove Award.
