Oh nothing, just a goalkeeper bicycle kicking a 50-yard lob off the line

Matthew Cano has arguably outdone even the great Rene Higuita with this effort.

THE ATTACKER ABOVE plays for a team called Deportivo Moron, but that’s only the second most incredible aspect of this story.

In the clip above showing an Argentinian Primera B Metro division game, the perceptive Gerardo Martinez attempts an ambitious 50-yard lob and almost succeeds.

Yet Urquiza goalkeeper Matthew Cano’s quick-thinking ensures he improbably manages to sprint back to his goal and bicycle kick the ball off his line.

Unfortunately, Deportivo Moron still ultimately triumphed 1-0, rendering Cano’s miraculous save irrelevant.
