Egyptian Goalkeeper Goes Viral For Incredible Save After Headed Clearance

Egyptian Goalkeeper Goes Viral For Incredible Save After Headed Clearance

Egyptian goalkeeper Mahmoud Gad has gone viral for rushing out of his goal to make a headed clearance then sprinting back for a last-ditch save.

The Enppi shot-stopper rushes out of his goal to head the ball away before an opposing player volleys the ball back towards the goal.

Check out the video below.


The 22-year-old keeper must have had his heart in his mouth as the ball looked to be looping in.

However, he managed to get back and punch the ball over the crossbar much to his own shock.

The 'sweeper-keeper' is often associated with Manuel Neuer but Gad could lay a claim to that after his unreal athleticism.

Twitter reacted to the crazy save.







The save is reminiscent of one Joe Hart made for Manchester City in a Manchester derby back in 2008.

City were chasing the game and Hart came up for a corner in extra time.

United managed to collect the ball and Ryan Giggs laid it off to Wayne Rooney who attempted an audacious 50 yard effort in the empty goal.

Rooney's effort was going in as Shaun Wright-Phillips scrambled back to attempt a goal line clearance.

Former England keeper Hart wasn't having any of it and ran back to his box to pull of a great save.

Check it out below.

A joy of football is seeing audacious attempts go in but there is also a beauty of seeing a keeper pull off the ridiculous too.

Obviously we all think of the iconic 'scorpion kick' save from Colombian Rene Higuita back in 1995.

But Gad's spectacular showing last night will surely go down as a great goalkeeping moment.

Shame that he and his side went on to lose the game 4-0.
