Saving a Ball Behind and Over the Head: Navas’ Amazing Save

18 Jun

If you didn’t see Navas’ (Costa Rica) save against Uruguay, you must. Ochoa made some great saves in the Mexico – Brazil game, the best of course being the dive to the post (not so much the dive but the fact that he fully extended, knowing that he could dive right into the post, and made the save). But Navas’ save was a textbook example of perhaps the most difficult save a goalie would have to make. Here’s some video with some notes. Enjoy.
