Cagliari drew 1-1 at Palermo on Saturday night in Serie A, and the visitors were aided in their draw by an incredible save from keeper Michael Agazzi.
In the first half Agazzi looked to have been beaten when a Fabrizio Miccoli free kick swerved in the air and seemed to wrong-foot the keeper. But Agazzi wouldn’t be beaten that easily.
In a move of amazing flexibility, the custodian managed to use his trailing heel to scorpion-kick the goal-bound shot off the goalline.
After the match Agazzi spoke about his save:
I was incredibly lucky! Would I be able to repeat it? Certainly, but I’d wreck my knee! I already snapped one cruciate ligament in my career. It really was an incredibly dangerous save to make.
