Costa Rican goalie Keylor Navas practices his stopping skills trying to save 160 km/h tennis balls [Video]

We’ve seen some mad goalkeeping drills through the years, and this is another one.

Keylor Navas, Costa Rica’s superb 27-year-old goalie, has become a massive name at the World Cup in Brazil, and now new footage has come to light showing how the stopper sharpens his skills.

Filmed at Levante, whom he plays club football with, Navas is filmed in a drill facing off against tennis star Pablo Andujar.

In short, Navas’ job is to try and stop Andujar from forehanding tennis balls into his net at a speed of around 160 km/h.

See the excellent footage below.
