Eskisehirspor defender Servet Cetin saves Taye Taiwo’s penalty after GK was sent off

Everyone loves seeing a outfield player save a penalty…

Saturday in Turkey saw Bursaspor beat Eskisehirspor 3-1, however the visitors had to work hard after Nigerian left-back Taye Taiwo blew a chance to seal the game from the penalty spot.

With Bursaspor leading 2-1 at the time, Eskisehirspor found themselves with major problems in the 77th minute as their keeper was sent off after all three subs had already been used from the bench.

Unable to bring on another goal, it was left for 32-year-old defender Servet Cetin to go in goal with the responsibility of facing a penalty as his first act between the sticks. Moreover, Cetin’s chances from th espot-kick seemed non-existent facing experienced set-piece taker Taiwo.

But then the incredible happened: after picking the right direction Cetin managed to stop the spot-kick and the rebound effort went wide.
