In the history of CONCACAF, not many players enjoyed a year more successful than goalkeeper Keylor Navas did in 2017.  He helped Costa Rica gain a berth in the 2018 FIFA World Cup, competing in seven CONCACAF Hexagonal matches and conceding only six goals.  The 30-year-old (turns 31 on December 15) won multiple titles with Real Madrid in 2017: UEFA Champions League, Spanish La Liga, UEFA Super Cup and the Supercopa de España.  Navas was honored as the CONCACAF Player of the Year in 2014 and CONCACAF Goalkeeper of the Year in 2016.
