Regarding Keylor, France Football points out that Navas is the most consistent player in Paris Saint-Germain, who disputes the first places in the league. His rivals are Serbian Predrag Rajkovic, from Stade Reims and winner of the recent election made by the magazine for the 2019-2020 season. Also taking part are Benoît Costil, from Girondins, Congolese Steve Mandanda from Olympique de Marseille and Franco-Algerian Alexandre Oukidja, from FC Metz.

Always among the greats
Keylor has been a regular in nominations for best goalkeeper. He was the winner of the 2014 award for the best goalkeeper in the Spanish league, when he played for Levante. He was also recognized by UEFA as the best goalkeeper in the Champions League in 2018, and has been nominated among the best goalkeepers in different awards internationally.
The last was for “The Best” award, awarded by FIFA. Although he was not in the final shortlist, he was recognized as the best by several international stars, including the Argentine Lionel Messi and the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo. Messi’s vote was striking after it was rumored that next year he could be Navas’ partner at PSG.
