Feyenoord goalkeeper saves certain goal with a genius piece of sh*thousery, the attacker was fuming
| Last updated
Feyenoord goalkeeper Justin Bijlow used the kind of tactic that Eddie Guerrero would have used if he were a footballer, to stop a certain goal.
On the weekend when Logan Paul pulled out one of the all time great Royal Rumble spots, Guerrero would have been proud of the lie, cheat and steal attitude of Bijlow.
Arne Slot's team have taken advantage of the devastation at Ajax that has been left behind by the departure of Erik ten Hag last summer.
The former manager took Lisandro Martinez and Antony with him to Manchester United, and it's really had an impact at the Johan Cruyff Arena.
With the Amsterdam based side down in fourth, Feyenoord have been able to take advantage, leading the title race from AZ Alkmaar and PSV.
All four sides remain within touching distance, with FC Twente still in the race too and would have been looking for a huge win at home to the league leaders on Sunday.
Santiago Gimenez gave the visitors the lead in the 30th minute but the hosts must have thought they would level things up just eight minutes later.
Virgil Misidjan ran down the wing and Bijlow came racing out of his goal and knocked the ball for a throw in, however, Misidjan was set to take a quick throw in, with the keeper throwing the ball on the pitch to stop the game, to stop what would have been an open goal, peak sh*thousery.
Gewoon een hele slimme actie van Bijlow, maar is het niet gewoon het ontnemen van een levensgrote kans ? #twefey pic.twitter.com/EB3hPY0gHx— Jordi Beeksma (@jordibeeksma) January 29, 2023
It was the reverse of Dean Saunders' famous goal for Sheffield United, against Port Vale, in the old First Division back in the 1997/98 season.
Vale keeper Paul Musselwhite did similar to Biljow in running out of his goal to get to the ball before the striker, and knock it out for a throw in.
However, on that occasion, it was the Welshman who reacted first, taking a quick throw in off Musselwhite's back, as he attempted to run back to goal, and then slotting into the pretty much open goal.

Sunday's attempts at brilliant gamesmanship earned the 25-year-old keeper a yellow card for his troubles, although a mightily, and rightly, p*ssed off Misidjan didn't get booked for throwing the ball.
It didn't save Feyenoord from dropping points however, with right back Joshua Brenet equalising for the hosts in the 68th minute.
Not that it took away from one of our favourite moments of the season.
