An undated video of a goalkeeper repeatedly preventing opponents from scoring a goal has gone viral on social media.
The clip, which was originally shared by the official page of Asian Football Confederation, features a group of boys playing in a make-shift football field wit goal posts made of poles. However, it is the goalkeeper of one of the two teams that caught the attention of many.
Clad in a number ‘Seven’ jersey, the boy continues to deflect the ball and prevent the players of the opposite team from scoring a single goal. Hence, hampering four consecutive attempts to score a goal.
