We’ve got a bit of goal reversal here. What’s more fun than a goalkeeper scoring a goal than an outfield player saving a penalty? It’s so exciting you may just spontaneously combust with excitement.
First up, as soccer continues to grip America, literally hundreds of people across the country witness Columbus Crew custodian, William Hesner scores a dramatic late equaliser against Toronto. In fairness, given that amount of time and space, we reckon even a deceased Lev Yashin would have been able to stick it away.
And from Mexico, we’ve got this fine example of an outfield player stepping in to save a penalty after a goalkeeper gets sent off. Normally examples of this ilk are thanks to a lame penalty from the attacker, but this one was heading for the corner before Juan Carlos Rojas dived full stretch to make the save. We’ll ignore the fact he was nearly standing beside the taker by the time the penalty was actually taken and savour the goalkeepery goodness.
