Since it’s inception in 1994, the Golden Glove is always awarded to the competition’s best goalkeeper. Formerly, the award was named after legendary keeper Lev Yashin but, the award’s name was changed to Golden Glove in 2010. Based on the player’s performance throughout the championship, FIFA Technical Study Group names the so-called goalkeeper of the competition. Although goalkeepers have their own prize, they are still eligible for the Golden Ball, just like when Oliver Kahn won in 2002.
