Neuer won the Golden Glove Award at the World Cup in Brazil, given to the tournament's best goalkeeper.

There was little doubt that Neuer would take home the trophy, especially after Germany won the World Cup with a 1-0 win over Argentina on Sunday. Neuer is without question the best goalkeeper in the world and he will continue to be a fantasy star with Bayern Munich.

Neuer made seven saves but allowed a 90th minute goal during Germany's 7-1 win over Brazil in the World Cup semifinal Tuesday.

Fantasy owners were surely disappointed by the late score by Oscar, who turned defender Jerome Boateng around, which left Neuer to try to keep the ball out of the net all by himself. He had done it a few times earlier in the match, but he just couldn't stop the final shot. Things figure to be a bit tough for Neuer in the final against either Argentina or the Netherlands, who are much stronger on the attack than Brazil (and especially Brazil without Neymar).

Neuer made four saves during Germany's 4-0 win over Portugal in their opening match of the World Cup on Monday.

Neuer, who recently returned to match fitness following his recovery from a shoulder injury, wasn't heavily tested against a Portugal side that was down to 10 men after 38 minutes. Portugal has the best attack of the other teams in Group G, so Neuer could be in line for further clean sheets against Ghana and the United States.

Neuer (shoulder) has been deemed fit and he will start Monday's World Cup match against Portugal, The Guardian reports.

Neuer recovered from his shoulder injury recently, but had trouble gaining full fitness ahead of their trip to Brazil. However, coach Joachim Low confirmed Sunday that his goalkeeper is ready, which is good news for the Germans, who will do their best to slow the attack headed by Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo.

Neuer signed a three-year contract extension that will keep him with Bayern Munich until 2019, ESPN FC reports.

Neuer is considered one of, if not the best goalkeeper in the world, so locking him up is obviously great news for Bayern. He will continue to start for them, as well as the German national team at this summer's World Cup.

Neuer has been on an excellent run in Bundesliga play recently, giving up only one goal in his last six league matches.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Neuer didn't have to make a single save during Saturday's 3-0 shutout of FC Augsburg.

Augsburg got only six shots off all day against the Bayern and Neuer didn't have to work very hard for his sixth clean sheet of the season. It will likely be much harder the next time out, as the club will hit the road to face Borussia Dortmund on November 23 after the international break.
