Jens Lehmann

Germany 2017

Twice voted UEFA Goalkeeper of the Year and with league winners’ medals in three countries, Jens Lehmann was one of Europe’s best keepers during a professional career that spanned nearly 25 years. Beginning at Schalke where he won the UEFA Cup, a Serie A title with AC Milan and Bundesliga title with Dortmund followed before a move to England and Arsenal. During his first season with the Gunners he was part of the famous Arsenal ‘Invincibles’ team, winning the Premier League in 2004. A year later he lifted The FA Cup and went on to reach the Champions League final. For Germany Lehmann played 61 times and his penalty heroics took Die Mannschaft to the World Cup semi-finals on home soil in 2006. An intelligent and a good shot stopper, known for his character and will to win, Lehmann retired from professional football in 2011 but returns to action at Star Sixes as part of Michael Ballack’s Germany team at The O2.
