Kyle Walker Produces Incredible Scissor-Kick Clearance On The Line To Deny Mohamed Salah

Kyle Walker went to absolute extreme lengths to deny Mohamed Salah a goal during the Community Shield.


The Manchester City defender produced an incredible scissor-kick clearance on the line deep into stoppage time to prevent his side from going behind.

Salah cut on to his trusted left peg and shot at goal, but his effort was blocked, though his header appeared destined to hit the back of the net until Walker's defensive heroics stopped Liverpool from scoring.


Walker's goal-line clearance proved crucial as City would go on to beat Liverpool 5-4 in a penalty shootout to win the Community Shield.

Speaking after his side's victory, Walker said: "I'm a defender. I stop goals."

Walker's moment of magic was the talk of the game. Here's some reaction from Twitter:


"If City win, it will because of this moment," one Twitter user wrote.

A second tweeted: "What is it with City clearing balls on the line vs us."

A third said: "Going bald turned him elite."

Another added: "He's got an aerodynamic head now."


After bagging their first piece of silverware of the new season, City begin their Premier League campaign away at West Ham on August 10.

Will Pep Guardiola's team defend their title? Let us know.
