Goalkeeper's Day is celebrated internationally on April 14 to commemorate one of the most difficult and questioned positions on the field. The date was established in honor of the birth of Miguel Ángel Calero Rodríguez, a former goalkeeper from Colombia, who met a sad end at the age of 41. He played 50 times for the Colombia national team between 1995 and 2007.
He was known for wearing a baseball cap as a goalkeeper and a bandana, and for having a pair of wings on the back of his jersey around his number, 1. These wings symbolize his nickname, "El Cóndor".
