Employed as a roaming sweeper-keeper behind Germany’s high defensive line, Manuel Neuer always covers a fair bit of ground, especially for a goalie – but his heat map for the Algeria game is bloody incredible.

In fact, it looks more like a central defender’s…

What can we say, the guy put a shift-and-a-half in. 21 touches outside of his box.

All hail Manuel Neuer, king of “The Vast Wilderness Behind Per Mertesacker”!
