The most capped goalkeeper in the history of the Colombia national team, David is now in his fourth season at Arsenal.
He ended 2016/17 one appearance short of his half century, and those outings have mainly come in the cups and European competition.
It was in the FA Cup that David particularly excelled last season, keeping two clean sheets in four matches, and starring in the final victory over Chelsea at Wembley Stadium. His other standout performances came in the Champions League, most notably away to Paris Saint-Germain when he made a string of exceptional saves to frustrate the hosts and earn a vital point.
Formerly with French side Nice, the agile and athletic shot-stopper joined the Gunners after six seasons in Ligue 1, having started his career with Atletico Nacional in his home country, where he won two league titles.
A full Colombia international since 2007, David – whose sister is married to international team-mate James Rodriguez – became his country’s most-capped goalkeeper in October 2016. Earlier that year he helped Colombia to third place in the Copa America in the USA.
In 2014 he impressed as Colombia made it to the last eight of the World Cup – nine years after being selected for the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship, aged just 16.
