Navas made a goalkeeping error Sunday in Real Madrid's 4-1 win over Espanyol.

Navas may have kept a clean sheet in the last three league games he started but his selection ahead of Iker Casillas against Espanyol was not justified. The Costa Rican international poorly controlled a backpass to gift possession to Christian Stuani who took advabtage to score the opponents' only goal. It turned out not to be costly however as a Marcelo strike and a Cristiano Ronaldo brace regained Real's command of the game.

Navas had a clean sheet Wednesday as Real Madrid beat Almeria 3-0.

Navas started ahead of Iker Casillas but was barely tested in a comfortable victory. He only touched the ball 28 times and Almeria didn't register a single shot on target. Navas has now started three league fixtures in the last six weeks and has kept a clean sheet every time.

Navas played the full 90 minutes and kept a clean sheet Friday as Costa Rica tied 0-0 with Paraguay in an international friendly.

Navas was bought by Real Madrid over the summer on the back of a string of impressive World Cup performances for Costa Rica. He impressed again Friday against Paraguay, shutting out the opposition's offense effectively.

Navas kept a clean sheet Sunday in Real Madrid's 2-0 win over Levante.

Making only his third La Liga start, Navas started his first game since Nov. 8., taking the place of Iker Casillas who had an error-prone game midweek. In truth a goalkeeper didn't even have to be there, Levante failed to register a single shot on target for the whole game.

Navas had two saves in his Real Madrid La Liga debut during Tuesday's 5-1 win over Elche.

Iker Casillas continues to get a majority of the starts in goal, but he hasn't been terribly impressive this season and Navas will continue to put pressure on him. The goal Navas allowed Tuesday was a penalty, so he was pretty sharp during open play. However, his fantasy value remains limited given his placement on the depth chart.

Navas officially signed with Real Madrid on Sunday after transferring from Levante.

Navas will likely take over the La Liga starts from Diego Lopez, who is expected to join AS Monaco shortly, although it is unclear if he'll supplant captain Iker Casillas in Champions League play. Casillas has been quite off for the last year or so, giving Navas a shot at an even bigger role.

Navas continues to do the impossible as he recorded a clean sheet against Italy on Friday in a Costa Rica win.

Navas saved all four shots on goal and is a major reason why Costa Rica is in charge of Group D. His surprising success will be put to the test once again Tuesday when the Ticos face England.
