    Question for soccer fans

    Click on this link to watch the clip. Two questions:

    1. Was this save during an actual game?

    2. Why didn't he just use his hands?

    That was Rene Higuita during the England - Columbia game back in about 1996.

    It was a "friendly" (exhibition) game, and it came at the right height so he just...did it! He didn't use his hands because he wanted to show off and create a little bit of fame for himself. He called it "the Scorpon Kick" and it's what he is famous for.

    Liquid, that is the Scorpion.
    It was from the greatest Goalie ever Rene Higuita.
    Unfortunately he became a coke addict like many of my Colombian Brethren.
    Oh well, thanks for the clip it brings back memories.

    He could have been one of the greatest if he was more focus on his career.
