I happened across yet another ‘greatest moments in soccer’, this one by Kent Wu. It was pretty good, but just around the 1:38 mark, I saw the most bizarre save by a keeper. Talk about acrobatic!
The trick is, watch where he leaps into the air, right on the goal line. So when he pokes the ball out, had it broken the plane or not? Doesn’t look like it – but man tough call all around. But why in the world did he DO that when he could have just reached up and grabbed it? Things that make you go hmmmmm. Hmmm 3AM and still more videos to watch. Resistance is futile.
