LOL That was hilarious.
But, I guess the save (or non-save, whatever) was pretty cool, too. :-)
i remember watching this match on tv YEARS AGO and then spending my whole summer trying to perfect that save... i never managed it!! ahh fun times.
You could do it better if you took your head out of your own ass.
At the time, the big debate was whether the goalie knew that play had stopped. I reckon he did because he would have seen the way all the players backed off ready for a goal kick.-
However, if the keeper really thought the ball was in play, he`s a dumb*ss for trying that in such an important match.
Thanks for pointing that out Mossoi, I`ve always wondered about this play.
Play had stopped when he made that save. If you look carefully you can see an offside England player (white shirts for y`all from the US of A) when the ball is kicked. Once the save has been made and the camera pans back you can see the referee holding his arm up to signal offside. Also, all of the players were retreating from the goal rather than following up the ball for a rebound.
