Confident save



After several years as a soccer official and parent of a player, I've seen a few games. Never a match that filled a stadium -- well, except for the 1999 Women's World Cup matches in Chicago -- but you get the idea. Youth, prep and college matches.

Anyway, this video clip of an unusual save caught my interest. Now that is confidence.

Rene Higuita invented the scorpion save and employed it famously in a friendly against England in 1995. Apparently it has spread a bit throughout South America, where such flair seems more valued than in "safety first" European football.
