Mathew Ryan: ‘English pundits tend to be critical of goalkeepers’

Brighton’s goalkeeper is thinking back to the night when Barcelona pummelled Gary Neville’s ragged Valencia side and it is clear he does not have fond memories from his only visit to the Camp Nou. “Wouldn’t it hurt you if you were a goalkeeper?” he says. Ryan, who counts learning Spanish as his main achievement from his time at Valencia, could have crumbled. Two years on, however, he is in a better place. He has impressed since joining Brighton last summer and knows how to cope with the pressure of being a goalkeeper. He is confident in his ability and hopeful about Australia’s chances in Russia, where they have been drawn with Denmark, France, and Peru. However, the Socceroos were rocked when Ange Postecoglou quit as manager after the playoff win against Honduras in November. “Shocked is a good way to put it,” Ryan says. “We had qualified and thought: ‘No way.’ I sent him a message along the lines of: ‘Don’t leave.’ It is a game of wait and sees now to see who will be leading us into it.
