Does height dimensions have any sense? Is it just? For those quiestions I will try to find answer for you in this article. So, let's get started!   Poland is famous because of good goalkeepers. We have plenty of them playing in top clubs and top leagues in Europe. Polish National team for many years also have good quality goalkeepers. Why is it so?
