Video: The best save you’ll see in MLS tonight

0 Comments

Montreal goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts has allowed some awfully bad goals this year. But he’s clearly still got the big save in him.

Watch this one, which was equal parts anticipation and athleticism. Ricketts probably has the best wingspan in MLS; when you see him up close, you wonder if he can stand in the middle of the goal and touch both posts.

So when he has a moment like this one, where he seems to know exactly where the ball will go, the man is nearly impossible to beat.

His first half save on Kenny Cooper in Saturday’s 3-1 win over the New York Red Bulls.
