    "portero" is the right word. By the way, do you know how to say the soccer/football match that the favourite one, between two rival teams, in spanish we say "el clasico".

    Sí, pero en Uruguay.

    En México el término más utilizado es "portero", pero también se utiliza "guardameta"

    ¿"Arquero" es otro término para "goalie" o es otro jugador?
