Watch: Egyptian Goalkeeper Pulls Off Spectacular Double Save

Egyptian goalkeeper Mahmoud Gad has become the talk of the town after a video of his heroic sports skills went viral on internet. The Egyptian footballer and ENPPI shot-stopper Mahmoud Gad became a star during EFL Championship.

In a match against Pyramids on Monday, September 23, the 22-year-old player showed extraordinary skills on field. While his team ENPPI lost the match to the Pyramids, this gem was the star of the match.

In a video that went viral, Gad ran more than 15m outside his box to header a dangerous pass back towards the centre of the field.

However, he found himself 30m away from his goal, when the ball was drifting towards the feet of an opposition player. This left the goal post wide open, with not a single defender within 25m of the netting.

A Pyramids player used the opportunity to take a wide open shot. However, at this moment, Gad ran all the way back to goal box, and diverted the ball away, at the back of the net, avoiding the opponents to score a point.

The goalkeeper has been receiving appreciation ever since. While football guru Gary Lineker labelled it an “extraordinary save” on the micro-blogging site, another user wrote, “ASTONISHING SOCCER RECOVERY BY ACROBATIC GOALIE.
