Peruvian Goalkeeper Makes Not One, But Two Insane Saves in a Row (Video)
When a player on your favorite team exercises poor judgment or makes a major blunder, heartburn and hairpulling is often the result. However, every once in a while a boneheaded play actually sets up something truly remarkable. And that’s what we have for you here.
During a recent match between Peru and Uruguay at the Sudamericano U20 tournament, a poor decision by Peruvian keeper Angelo Campos led to one of the most incredible double saves you will ever see. Campos came out to challenge Uruguayan striker Gonzalo Bueno outside the penalty area on a long, bouncing feed, even though one of his defenders was already there. And of course, both Peruvians failed to intercept the pass, leaving Bueno with a wide open goal.
But Bueno did not score. Not on the first attempt at an open goal from just outside the penalty area, and not on the second attempt from point blank range, either.
You’ve got to see it to believe it:
Were those incredible saves, or what?
Now, as you may have noticed in the video, this scoring opportunity came with Uruguay up 3-2 with just about 5 minutes remaining in the second half. If they had scored, it would have been game over for Peru. But Uruguay did not score here, and Peru then went on to score the equalizer and hold on for the 3-3 tie.
