Can a goalkeeper in soccer wear football gloves?

Sure they can. I don't know why you would want to but I don't know of any rules against it. You cannot wear football cleats but I see no reason why you can't wear football gloves. Wear winter gloves for all the ref cares. I would highly recommend purchasing a quality pair of goalie gloves though. High end goalie gloves have something known as finger savers. This stops your fingers from over extending backwards and can save you a lot of money on medical bills. A good pair of goalie gloves will also have a great grip on the ball and will allow you to distribute the ball just as well (they're not sticky rubber) there are a lot of great advantages to investing in a pair of goalie gloves, just go check them out. Id recommend eurosport unless you have a local soccer shop where you can actually try them on and see the difference. Remember, goalie gloves are designed for this stuff. Football gloves aren't.

Why doesn't a soccer goalie have to wear a glove?

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.

How do soccer goalie gloves differ from other sports athletic gloves?

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.
