Kyle Walker Plays As Goalkeeper For Manchester City Against Atalanta

Kyle Walker Plays As Goalkeeper For Manchester City Against Atalanta

In a remarkable end to proceedings at the San Siro on Wednesday night, Manchester City defender Kyle Walker was forced to go in goal for the final stages of their Champions League group stage clash against Atalanta.

The right-back stepped up to replace Claudio Bravo, who was given a red card after he brought down Josip Ilicic in the 81st minute.

Bravo originally replaced first choice keeper Ederson after he was brought off injured at half-time, and is now a doubt for their clash against Liverpool at the weekend.

Back to the game and Walker was forced into action fairly quickly, saving a routine free-kick from 22 yards.

In fact, that save in the 87th minute meant that Walker made more saves in the Group C clash than both Ederson and Bravo combined.

Despite going down to ten men in the latter stages, Pep Guardiola's side managed secure a point against the Serie A side.

Raheem Sterling opened the scoring for City in the seventh minute. The 24-year-old has now scored five goals in the Champions League this season, as well as two assists.

Atalanta midfielder Mario Pasalic managed to find an equaliser in the second half but the Italian side couldn't find a winner as Kyle Walker kept his very own clean sheet.

There's nothing quite like an outfield goalkeeper.
