You could argue that it was the fortuitous bobble just before it reached him that sprang the ball clean over the bar, but David Luiz’s sprawling goal-line clearance to deny Pedro an equaliser in the Confederations Cup final yesterday evening was still bloody chuffin’ marvelous…


Fantastic stuff. As Mark Lawrenson quipped on commentary, definitely as good as a goal.

Pies get the distinct feeling that if Luiz didn’t have such “hilarious” clown hair, there wouldn’t be half as much griping about his defensive nous. The man’s clearly a brilliant centre-half.
