Has anyone ever seen the greatest save ever in football? Well if not then here it is.

I was going to post this months back but forgot all about it.

Coupet, the Lyon goalie makes this stunning save then another one immediately after. It makes it even better that they were playing against Barcelona.

Let me know what you think and if you agree with me or not?

Not too blow my own trumpet like, but when I was 7 and playing 5 a side at wallsend boysclub, I made the greatest save ever against a little known Man Utd player called Micky Carrick. Unfortunatley no video evidence exists. What about banksy's save in 70? youtube.com/wat…5Bo

That 2nd save is 10/10 for reflexes, awesome.

My vote still stands with the one i posted originally and course everyone has their favorites.

The Peter Schmeichel one will live long in the memory, how the hell did he put it over i will never know.

The 2nd save of yours is good, but I don't understand why the keeper used his head in the 1st place

Deliberate backpass. Would've been a free kick if he'd have handled it.

Awesome stuff.

I think he needed to use his head otherwise if his hands would of been used and he had dropped the ball then it would of been a goal.

By using his head it gave the ball enough power and height to just get onto the crossbar, amazing i think but even more so that he thought about using his head and pulled it off.

As a keeper, I'm quite certain that I can push the ball further by punching it while diving, than by heading it while diving. It looks like he made it harder for himself by heading it. If he had punched it over the bar, he wouldn't have had to make a double save.

this for me is the most stunnign save ever!!!!

How about this for one of the worst "saves" ever - Schumacher (German) nearly killing Battiston (France)

I was watching the game on TV and it was a great game of footie..
youtube.com/wat…oqo

Battiston got to the ball first and kicked it over the oncoming keeper's head. Everyone's gaze followed the ball, which bounced narrowly wide of goal, so people only glimpsed that Schumacher had made contact with Battiston. Watching replays, it was clear what had happened. As the German journalist Ulrich Hesse-Lichtenberger puts it: 'Just prior to crashing into Battiston he [Schumacher] did a little jump and turned his upper body in order to ease the impact. Ease it for himself, that is, as the helpless Battiston was hit in the face by Schumacher's hipbone with full force, immediately going down unconscious.'

France players - and the West Germany captain, Kaltz - surrounded the stricken man and began waving for help. The French physio and doctor ran on, and immediately called for a stretcher. By grim chance the Seville police had, for some unknown reason, barred Red Cross officials from the sidelines. It took three minutes for a stretcher to appear, lifted up from some basement store beneath the stands. Eventually uniformed men with Red Cross armbands trotted on.

Schumacher, meanwhile stood, impassively at the edge of his six-yard box, ball under one arm, the other hand on his hip. According to Hesse-Lichtenberger: 'His body language said: "Get the guy off the pitch so that I can take my goal-kick."'

Platini later said that he thought his team-mate was dead. 'He had no pulse. He looked so pale.' Finally Battiston was carried off, accompanied on one side by a medic, on the other by Platini, who walked along bent towards Battiston's ashen face. The unconscious player's right arm flopped over the side of the stretcher, and Platini took Battiston's hand. He spoke softly to him as he walked. As they neared the edge of the pitch, Platini raised Battiston's hand and kissed it.

Battiston lost two teeth, had three cracked ribs and damaged vertebrae, and was unconscious for almost half an hour. But now that he was off the pitch, play restarted, with indeed a goal-kick for West Germany, and no word of reprimand for Schumacher.

It was one of the worst fouls I've ever seen - the keeper made no attempt to go for the ball and France didn't even get a free kick....
