Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is better than Peter Schmeichel, claims the IFFHS.

Gianluigi Buffon is better than Peter Schmeichel, Iker Casillas and a host of other legendary goalkeepers, according to the International Federation of Football History and Statistics.

Members of the organisation voted for the best goalkeeper of the past 25 years, and Buffon came out on top with 197 votes to his name.

And while their top 10 list is open to debate, the Juventus man sits on the summit. It’s also worthy to note that there are no English national goalkeepers in the list.
