How to play Pete Cetera, a great goalkeeper

When it comes to goalkeepers, few can match Pete Cedera. 

Cedera is the only goalkeeper in the history of MLS history to have more than two shutouts in the same season. 

He has also set a club record for shutouts, going 4-0-1 in 2017 with a 1.57 goals-against average. 

In his five seasons in MLS, Cederas shutouts are second only to Jair Benitez, who has been the only keeper to record shutouts twice. 

But in addition to his incredible save percentage, Ceteras record of 4.19 goals-per-game is second only only to the one in New York City FC’s Jonathan Lewis. 

So what is it about Ceterra that makes him so good? 

Cetera is a goal keeper who is not afraid to make big saves. 

This past season, he made a number of big saves, including in the 2017 Eastern Conference Final vs. Toronto FC. 

On August 29th, Cerna saved a penalty kick to preserve the game. 

“I think it was one of those big saves that you just feel like you have to get back and make a save, and that’s what I did,” Cederra said after the game in a video interview with MLSsoccer.com. 

His save was just the third of his career, which ties the club record. 

The first was a 1-0 win over Seattle Sounders FC on March 17, 2015. 

And the other two were save in the playoff against Atlanta United FC on June 4th and a 1 – 0 win over New York Red Bulls II on June 12th. 

Now let’s look at some of his biggest saves this season.
