Young goalkeeper pulls off stunning save from swerving free-kick

Published 7 Comments

Those readers of a certain age will remember Roberto Carlos's stunning free-kick against France at Le Tournoi back in 1997.

And if you don't remember it, no doubt you would have watched it on YouTube and tried to figure out just how the Brazilian managed to bend his shot inside the post when it started off looking more likely to hit the corner flag.

Well, it seems there is another footballer out there who can bend a free-kick like Carlos - and he's not even old enough to shave yet.

And better still - although the youngster hit an undeniably brilliant free-kick that had his team-mates on the bench celebrating as it looked destined for the corner of the net - his rival in goal somehow managed to save it despite initially setting off in the wrong direction!

There are sadly a lack of details on offer about this video but you don't need to know names - just watch and admire.
