Every team must have a good goalkeeper at the goal post if they want to prevent goals from entering their net. One important time a goalkeeper is needed is during penalties. Catching penalties is not a very easy thing. Most times, players often score the goalkeepers who can't really do much to stop the ball from entering into the net.

As difficult as it is to catch a penalty, there are some keepers who have amazing penalty keeping records. One of these keepers is Scott Sterling. Scott Sterling plays for Yale University.
