Fabian Carini
Club:Barcelona
Position:Goalkeeper

At first sight Fabian Carini does not appear tall enough to be a world-class goalkeeper.

However, what he lacks in height, he more than makes up for in ability.

Denied a regular first-team spot at Juventus because of the presence of Gianluigi Buffon, Carini is nevertheless willing and able whenever he is called upon by his national team.

In a side which sometimes struggles to score, Carini has been hugely important at keeping them in the game - his saves alone won several of Uruguay's points during qualifying.

He sometimes struggles on crosses, but is working hard on improving that aspect of his game.

Prior to the World Cup Carini moved from one European giant to another, leaving Juve for Barcelona on a one-year loan deal.
