VIDEO: Keylor Navas’ save is Best of the Season in Spain
Tico goalkeeper Keylor Navas continues his winning streak: the Spanish Football League, “La Liga,” has chosen one of his saves for Real Madrid as Best of the 2016-2017 Season.
The save occurred during Real Madrid’s 2-0 away win against Málaga CF on May 21, a match where Navas blocked every chance Málaga created.
The winning stop was a flying save to block a Sandro Ramírez free kick that seemed destined for the top right corner. Navas’ flight was so risky that after deflecting the ball, he struck the pole and had to receive medical assistance.
In 2014, when Navas was playing for Levante CF, La Liga chose Navas as the “Best Goalkeeper of the Season.” His outstanding work during that season earned him the contract with Real Madrid.
