They are the most nerve-wracking moments of a goalkeeper’s life. The cup-tie is over. It’s 0-0. The forward who models himself on Cristiano Ronaldo is placing the ball on the penalty spot. In ten seconds he’ll be propelling it goalwards with power and precision. That’s when the goalie stands tall, preps himself for a leap to left or right, and has a quick check that his goalkeeper gloves are set fair to help with the best of outcomes, preventing the penalty.
