Luis Robles – Great double save. Lots to admire.

This great double save by Luis Robles from New York Red Bulls has so much to admire.

1st – Observe the set up from the free kick. Luis has to work hard to organize. ( See list of duties for Goalkeepers on set pieces here )

2nd – Great “Imperfect World” save having to deal with a deflection

3rd – Great use of the claw ( the 50/50 technique ) when making impact with the ball at the same time as the forward. The claw is when you change your hand shape to be stronger upon impact.

Here is the same save from behind the goal.
