Being the goalkeeper means you sometimes, albeit rarely, get to be the hero.
A lot of the time though, you end up being the last line of defence that is left to face a striker who's running towards goal on his own, left in a one on one where the odds are against you. That can be a lonely gig.
That's why the folks at EA Sports have put some extra thought in to the art of goalkeeping in this year's edition of the game, perhaps inspired by Tim Howard's brilliance at the World Cup, and have come up with a bunch of new animations, new reactions and improved the AI.
This new trailer is one of many announcements that they've been making at Gamescom, Europe's biggest games conference, so expect a few more exciting details to come out over the next few days from the folks at EA and plenty of others.
