Why should a goalkeeper have to wear gloves in football? Gloves are only worn for padding and gripping reasons, so it is the choice of the keeper as to whether he prefers the grip of the gloves and whether he feels he needs padding. The only real argument for goalies to have to wear gloves is that if there is a packed penalty area, and the referee sees a hand touch the ball, it is easier in that split second to see if it was the goalkeeper or whether someone comitted hand ball.
The player is the goalkeeper (often shortened to goalie).
Their goalkeeper played for five world cups in a row. And another goalkeeper Jorge Campos would change position from a goalie to a midfielder.
Soccer goalie gloves differ from other sports athletic gloves because of the padding on the back of the glove to protect the metacarpals on the goalie's hand from breaking if the ball made contact with the back of the goalie's hand. These gloves are almost reminiscent of UFC training gloves except for the fact that the fingers are covered on soccer goalie gloves as well.
It's just a shortened name. Like footy for football or Mike for Michael.
No, goalkeepers just wear the same boots as the rest of the team. If they are a really good keeper they can get away with wearing a bright colour, but the majority of them stay moderately conservative.
