Kyle Walker came up clutch for Manchester City in the final moments of today’s Community Shield clash vs Liverpool, look at this insane goal-line clearance.
In the 91st minute of today’s season opener, Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah turned England international John Stones in and out before firing an effort towards goal.
The superstar’s shot was blocked but he managed to loop a header towards goal with a rebound. The header looked destined to hit the back of net, but Kyle Walker had other plans.
The former Tottenham star race back towards his goal-line and produced an acrobatic overhead kick clearance to deny Salah the chance of spectacularly winning the game for the Reds.

It’s highly unlikely that we’ll see an acrobatic last-ditch clearance again for some time. Walker’s athleticism is truly amazing.
