Leon Goretzka believes it's fair to say that his Germany teammates Manuel Neuer and Marc-André ter Stegen are the world's two best goalkeepers at the moment.


Speaking ahead of Friday's Champions League quarter-final, which will see Neuer, Goretzka and Bayern lock horns with FC Barcelona and ter Stegen, Goretzka told reporters:

"You could say that they are the two best goalkeepers in the world. I'm very lucky to play with both of them in the national team. 'Manu' has a lot of experience and gives us security. Marc-André has also become a world-class goalkeeper in Barcelona. We are blessed with good goalkeepers in Germany."

Ter Stegen, 28, has long been breathing down Neuer's neck to become Germany's first-choice goalkeeper, but has so far remained behind the 34-year-old in the pecking order.
