In honor of the World Cup Finals, here’s a great goalie stop from a few years ago. Rene “el loco” Higuita, a Columbian goalkeeper, is featured in this clip. Higuita invented the scorpion kick, a clearance where the goalkeeper jumps forward, arches his legs up over his head, and in doing so, kicks the ball away with his heels. Brilliantly executed in this friendly game. YouTube.
