19-Year-Old Shakhtar Goalkeeper Anatolii Trubin Produced A Save Of The Season Contender Last Night

Shakhtar Donetsk's Anatolii Trubin pulled off an outrageous save to prevent Romelu Lukaku from scoring for Inter Milan.

The 19-year-old goalkeeper was in fine form between the sticks as he produced a save of the season contender during their Champions League clash on Tuesday.

He denied Lukaku with a sensational save, somehow tipping the ball over the bar for a corner.

The striker's reaction says it all - he stood there in disbelief after striking a rocket of a free-kick.

Trubin's heroics in goal sent social media wild.

One Twitter user wrote: "Crazy save this, I haven't seen a free kick save as good as this I don't think ever."

A second tweeted: "Prime example of why the hands always stay high instead of down low, excellent stop reflexes second to none aswell, bullet of a shot too."

A third joked: "That's ridiculous, Kepa wouldn't save it if it was coming at a quarter of the speed ffs."

Trubin's brilliant save proved to be vital as Shakhtar and Inter played out a goalless draw in Ukraine.

Speaking after his side's draw, Inter boss Antonio Conte admitted he was "disappointed" with the result.

"I must be disappointed with the final result," he told UEFA.com. "We created so many chances to score and big chances.

"At the same time, we played against a team what were difficult to beat. They played defensively in the same way they played against Real Madrid, when they scored three goals on the break.

"This is why I think we played a good game with and without possession. We were focused on attacking but at the same time trying to stop Shakhtar from countering.

"I think we deserved more than the result, but I congratulate Shakhtar. They are now top of our group with four points."
