Take care of your body
As a goalkeeper, you have probably experienced playing on a rock hard pitch, where every save causes bruises? Obviously that isn't a valid excuse for skipping training or especially a game - it just means you should get the right goalkeeper accessories with some extra protection that you can always bring with you. Sells and Uhlsport make sublime knee and elbow protection pads that will give you full flexibility and at the same time protect you from the worst bruises. If you often experience finger injuries, finger tape is a must have in your glove bag. In contrast to regular sports tape, the special finger tape gives more flexibility, and thus provides both protection and full ball control.
Everything you shouldn’t live without This is the ultimate collection of accessories for any goalkeeper, who cares about his or her equipment, and doesn't let challenges get in the way of optimal performance.
Before I knew about these products, I honestly didn’t feel like I needed any of them. Now I’ve gotten used to always bringing a bag of tape, shin guards, Glove Glu, a towel, a bottle and extra protection on the pitch - and now I never go without it!
