Brazilian goalkeeper Paolo Henrique has created a bit of history in the Copa Sao Paulo junior tournament, saving four penalties in one match for Goias against Bahia.

Henrique was called upon in the second-half of the semi-final, saving a penalty that was to then be retaken after the referee spotted some encroachment at the edge of the box.

It wasn’t a problem for the young stopper however, saving the retake with a dive the other way to help send the game into penalties.

And, after his earlier heroics during the 90 minutes, there was only ever going to be one outcome, with Henrique then saving two out of the three kicks he faced in the shootout.

To make it even better, the effort he didn’t get his hands to hit the bar and bounced away, securing a 3-0 victory from the spot.

Check out the incredible video below, and let us know which club you think should try and sign Henrique! If only he was English (skip to 1 minute, 16 seconds to get to the good stuff in the footage below)….
