Higuita Scorpion Kick
In a friendly soccer match versus England, Colombian goalkeeper Rene Higuita doesn’t feel like using his hands to make the save so he flips up his legs in the back and clears the ball. Just craziness. Take a look at the famous scorpion kick by Higuita.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen another goalkeeper try a kick save quite like this. In some ways though, that’s just what you want from your goalkeeper, a bit of flair and style, as long as they don’t do it in a real game though! When will a keeper in the modern game try this scorpion kick? Manchester United’s David de Gea is pretty athletic, I could see him pulling off a scorpion kick!
