Sick Defending! Deportivo Tachira’s 19-year-old goalie slid tackled a Lara attacker, then nutmegged him
An incredible piece of defending was spotted in Venezuela last weekend as Deportivo Tachira drew 0-0 with ACD Lara.
Visitors Lara thought they had a sniff on goal when centre-forward Gustavo Paez set off in a foot race to beat Tachira’s 19-year-old goalie Jose Contreras to the ball.
With the meeting point being outside the box, keeper Contreras delivered a perfectly timed slide tackle to stop Paez to begin with.
Then, with the ball at his feet, the teenager goalie pulled off an outstanding trick as he nutmugged the Lara #14 to make him look like a dummy.
Watch the super defending from Deportivo Tachira’s 19-year-old goalie below.
