Muslera is fast becoming one of the top young goalkeepers in the world, and he'll play a vital role if Uruguay is going to advance out of the group stage of the World Cup for the first time since 1990. His shot-stopping ability caught the attention of European clubs early in his career after he starred for his hometown Montevideo Wanderers. Lazio of Italy's Serie A purchased Muslera for 3 million Euros in 2007, but he had to fend off another promising youngster - Juan Pablo Carrizo - for the starting job. While the two battled over the job, Muslera emerged as the starter and solidified his position by helping Lazio win the 2009 Coppa Italia by saving two penalties. He followed that performance with another superb effort in Lazio's 2-1 win over Inter in the Supercoppa Italiana on Aug. 8. Despite his strong play for Lazio, Muslera didn't play his first game for Uruguay until helping it beat Ecuador 2-1 in a World Cup qualifier Oct. 10. He held on to the starting role and helped Uruguay return to the World Cup for the first time since 2002 after it defeated Costa Rica 2-1 on aggregate in a playoff in November.
