Spain Goalkeeper David De Gea Makes An Extraordinary Diving Save Against Sweden

Spain Goalkeeper David De Gea Makes An Extraordinary Diving Save Against Sweden

Spain goalkeeper David de Gea pulled off a truly magnificent save to keep out a goalbound header during Monday night's European Championship qualifier against Sweden.

The 28-year-old, who has been criticised at times this season for his performances in the Premier League, certainly proved his doubters wrong with this heroic effort.

With the score at 0-0 in the 31st minute, Swedish full-back Mikael Lustig floated in a perfectly weighted cross to Robin Quaison.

The Mainz 05 striker connected with a powerful header but the Spanish number one saved his side from going a goal down with a remarkable acrobatic stop.

Manchester United fans will be hoping to see such heroics from the Spaniard when they come up against Liverpool on Sunday afternoon - that's if he is fit.

De Gea was brought off in the second half against Sweden with a suspected groin strain that could rule him out of the tie at Old Trafford.

Even if he doesn't take part at the weekend, De Gea will also be hoping United perform far better than their defeat against Newcastle at the start of the month.

It was a game that left them two points above the Premier League relegation zone and in an emotional post match interview, de Gea said that United are going through their toughest period.

He was lost for words in the interview and said that this is "probably the most difficult time since I've been here."


Do you think Manchester United can get a result against Liverpool at the weekend?

One thing is for certain. David de Gea will have to be at his brilliant best to keep out the likes of Salah, Mane and Firmino.
