In the 87th minute of Liverpool’s Champions League tie against Ajax, stand-in goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher ensured that the Reds would come away with all three points with a superb save.
Nicolas Tagliafico floated a dangerous cross into the box from the right-wing, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar seemed primed to score after getting perfectly in between Fabinho and Joel Matip.
The Dutchman’s effort was tipped over the bar from Kelleher after it was directed straight at the 22-year-old.

Quite the first senior appearance for the Reds this season from the Irishman, this was just Kelleher’s fifth first-team outing for the Merseyside outfit.
