A Sweeper Keeper is a modern style keeper who plays a high defensive line and starts attacks form the back.
Their primary job is the same as a normal goalkeeper but they also play a secondary role of sweeping up balls from around the penalty area and start quick counter attacks.
Can sometimes be described as a ball playing goalkeeper.
Examples of sweeper keepers are: Hugo Lloris and Manuel Neuer.
