Barcelona star recreates legendary Scorpion save

Next Story

It's unsurprising that being understudy to Victor Valdes leaves you with a lot of spare time on your hands, so we salute Pinto for using this down time so effectively.

The Spaniard got a companion (Valdes?) to film him mucking about during training with Barcelona, managing to pull off a decent impression of famed former Columbia goalkeeper Rene Higuita's famous 'Scorpion' save in a friendly with England at Wembley - watch it here.

Pinto took the video then put it on a snazzy little loop so viewers can watch his acrobatics over and over again, it actually makes for quite a comical sight - can you tell it's the international break?
