Fernando Muslera Football Career

Here, we take a closer look at Fernando Muslera’s Football career so far.

Club Career


Muslera, an Argentinean who was born in Buenos Aires, relocated to Montevideo with his family and joined the club’s development program before starting his professional football career there with the Montevideo Wanderers. After putting on strong performances for Wanderers, Nacional of Uruguay decided to borrow him in 2007. He attracted interest from Europe after a string of impressive performances, and Lazio eventually signed him in 2007.


Lazio signed Muslera in August 2007 for a fee of approximately €3 million. He made his debut for Lazio in a 3–1 home win against Cagliari on 16 September 2007 and made four more consecutive starts, the last which was a disastrous performance in Lazio’s 1–5 home loss to Milan on 7 October, a match in which he was at fault on four of the five goals Lazio conceded. That result saw him benched in favor of 44-year-old Marco Ballotta. He remained as the second-choice for the remainder of the season, making only four more Serie A appearances and none in the UEFA Champions League. However, he did play all of Lazio’s remaining Coppa Italia matches, putting in good performances.


While Muslera was representing Uruguay in the 2011 Copa América, Turkish Süper Lig club Galatasaray made the announcement that he had signed a five-year contract with them from Lazio.

In addition, Galatasaray paid €6.75 million to Muslera’s former club, Montevideo Wanderers, which held 50% of his playing rights, and Lorik Cana moved the other way to Lazio. Muslera’s contract called for him to earn €2 million annually (although, Lazio valued the selling of Muslera for free (as termination of contract) as well as Cana’s signing for a peppercorn of €1).

International career

2010 FIFA World Cup

On June 11, 2010, during Uruguay’s first World Cup game, Muslera faced France for the first time. He preserved a clean sheet in each of Uruguay’s three group games (0-0 vs. France, 3-0 vs. South Africa, and 1-0 vs. Mexico). Before Uruguay’s goal against South Korea in the round of 16, Muslera had established a World Cup record for the longest streak of unbeaten goaltending. He made a vital play against Ghana in the quarterfinal, saving two penalties in the shootout.

2011 Copa América

Coach Carlos Tabárez once more selected Muslera as the starting goalkeeper for Uruguay at the 2011 Copa América, which was played in Argentina. Muslera saved a penalty from Carlos Tevez to help Uruguay advance on penalties in the quarterfinal encounter against Argentina, earning him the honour of being named man of the match.

After defeating Paraguay 3-0 in the championship match, Uruguay went on to win the Copa América. Muslera participated in every minute of Uruguay’s victorious World Cup campaign, starting every game.

Later career

Muslera was Uruguay’s first-choice goalkeeper at the 2014 World Cup and the 2015 Copa América, playing every minute as Uruguay reached the last 16 of the former and the quarter-finals of the latter. He similarly featured in all of Uruguay’s games at the Copa América Centenario the following year, where they suffered a first-round elimination.
