National teams goalie in hot waters

Being good at goalkeeping is not easy; it takes a lot of skill, strength, training, focus, and good leadership. In addition to being the last line of defense, goalies have an excellent view of the field to position the other players better and lead the team to victory. For example, they can instruct defensive players to defend against corner, free, and indirect kicks. Goalies can leave the penalty area, but they are no different from any other player on the field once they do. Hence, they cannot touch the ball with their hands outside this box. It is, however, permitted for a goalie to dribble the ball back into the box and then pick it up to punt it down the field.
