Home / Serie A / Verona Keeper Leads Swashbuckling One Man Counter Attack to Feed Striker for Last Minute Winner…(Video)


Well no one can say Verona keeper Raphael is one to rest on his laurels as the Brazilian caught this corner with his goalie gloves at the death of his sides Serie B match Ternana and led a one man counter attack. As you can see below, Raphael could have kicked the ball down the field, or rolled it out to another player. Instead, puts it down in front of him, holds off an opposing player, and sends a lovely through ball up the striker, catching the opposing goalie out, and sending it into the back of the net.

Lovely to see…
