Arsenal star David Ospina makes stunning save from Messi

Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina had a mixed season between the sticks for the Gunners last year, his first campaign at the Emirates Stadium.

The Colombia star joined Arsenal off the back of a good World Cup in Brazil, and he won a starting place from Wojciech Szczesny.

The Gunners enjoyed a strong season in the league, once again qualifying for the Champions League - but while Ospina won praise for his shot-stopping he was criticised for his weakness in claiming crosses under pressure.

But it was the former on display last night as Ospina kept Argentina at bay in their Copa America quarter-final.

Argentina eventually went through on penalties after a 0-0 draw, during which Ospina was superb as Lionel Messi and co peppered his goal.

One of Ospina's saves in particular was remarkable - and it was from Messi. The Barca star seemingly had an open goal to aim for after another great save from the Arsenal stopper saw the ball pop up into his path.

But Ospina had other ideas, scrambling across goal to keep Messi out.

Watch it below…

What do you think Arsenal fans - should Ospina stay at Arsenal next season or is Petr Cech the right move?
