All four first choice goalkeepers are in the running to claim the prestigious award and dabblebet believes there is little to choose between them

The race for the Golden Glove looks set to go down to the wire, according to the latest odds from dabblebet.

The award will be decided by an independent FIFA panel, rather than on a specific statistic such as the Golden Boot race.

All four first-choice goalkeepers left in the World Cup are all in with a shot, although it is Tottenham Hugo Lloris that leads the way at 9/4 (3.25).

The France stopper has kept two clean sheets in his four games so far this summer, the joint-most of any still active and was unlucky to concede three times against Argentina.

England’s Jordan Pickford is 5/2 (3.50) to scoop the award, which would be all the more impressive considering his place as the Three Lions’ number one was not confirmed until days before their first match.

After a flying stop against Colombia in the last 16 just moments before Yerry Mina’s last-gasp equaliser, Pickford then made three excellent saves against Sweden to keep his name in the running.

Next in the market is Thibaut Courtois at 11/4 (3.75), who has made an incredible 18 saves for Belgium to keep his side still in the tournament.

As well, the Chelsea stopper has a 77 per cent save percentage - the highest of any of the four regular ‘keepers left – and made a string of saves to limit Brazil’s talent attack to just one goal in the quarter-finals.

Finally, Croatia’s Danijel Subasic is available at 3/1 (4.0) after saving three penalties in the Vatreni’s last 16 shootout win over Denmark - the joint-most saved in a single.

The AS Monaco player also saved Fedor Smolov’s spot kick in the shootout against Russia to move onto four shootout saves in a single World Cup, joining Argentina’s Sergio Goycochea as the only players to do so.
