INFO:
Spoiler: show
Sergio Javier Goycochea (born October 17, 1963 in Lima, Buenos Aires) is a famous Argentine former football goalkeeper. He is best known for his penalty kick saves.

Goycochea was the substitute for Nery Pumpido both in River Plate and in the Argentine national team, and got his big break in the 1990 FIFA World Cup, when Pumpido was injured in Argentina's second group game against the Soviet Union. Goycochea was then the goalkeeper in the penalty shootout in the quarterfinal game against the Yugoslavian team. In the semifinal game against Italy, he saved penalty kicks in the penalty shootout from players Roberto Donadoni and Aldo Serena. He was also close to saving the heavily criticized game-winning penalty kick of the 1990 World Cup final against Germany, which Argentina lost 0-1. He was chosen as the goalkeeper of the Cup's All-Star Team.

Updated to fit new format. Applied most of the suggestions made by julgui. Changes...

1. Changed his Era from 1990-1991 to 1987-1993. As far as I remember (from the videos of Argentina from 1994 World Cup), he wasn't the first keeper on 1994 World Cup, Islas was. Later I read that he had a few bad performances in 1994 (before the World Cup) and because of that Islas got the position of the first keeper.

Added following clubs in his club list: Club Atlético River Plate, Racing Club, Stade Brestois 29, Cerro Porteño, Olimpia.

Added his number at 1990 World Cup (12).

2. Abilities update:

Defence: 89-->88; Stamina: 67-->68; Top Speed: 65-->69; Acceleration: 68-->70; Response: 93-->89; Agility: 83-->87; Dribble Accuracy: 44--54, Dribble Speed: 47-->58; Short Pass Accuracy: 50-->56, Short Pass Speed: 55-->65, Long Pass Accuracy: 57-->63, Long Pass Speed: 64-->68; Shot Accuracy: 45-->44, Shot Power: 84-->83, Shot Technique: 46-->44; Curling: 45-->44; Header: 48-->44; Jump: 86-->88; Technique: 49-->58; Mentality/Tenacity: 87-->84; Goalkeeper Skills: 90-->86; Team Work: 83-->82.

3. Added new Cards: S11: Penalty Saver + Attack/Defence Awareness Card: Defence Minded.

4. Fixed Info, added more videos and Additional Links. Added julgui into the credits.

Lost his job not only in GK bad in some matches. But by the historic 5-0 vs Colombia (where they had a lot of responsibility), but the pressure of the press, leaving an alternate term.

Indeed, he was a really average keeper, even a bad one...set is pretty much overrated almost in every gk stat i'd say. Similar to Romero, he was pure response, but his abilities to posicionate, going out and even his mentality sucked really as well as his teamwork. Agility 87 my ass.

Added to the DB. Toned down the set cause it was absolutely overrated in almost every key stat. Lemme know if there's something wrong, he was just that...a lucky keeper who had great saves in key moments but average as any other...imo he was even quite mediocre but he had the luck Pumpido got injured in the 1st game. Probably some numbers are still high and response could be a little better. Also I changed the era to represent his two WC.

I didn't watch much about him, just some comps but he clearly wasnt good, his defensive abilities were quite average, just had lucky. Imo, could go much harsh with his def value, smth like 81, he was clearly a little step over of rene higuita in terms of clear saves, how safe is in the line, etc and his tw value is quite generous too, he overpass with the defenders and having some blunders because was shitty about communication with his teammates. Also hardly doubt is was that strong, never seen dominant to deserve that value. Not sure about his mentality and his response.
