Liverpool’s Dominik Szoboszlai denied audacious goal by ridiculous save from Leicester goalkeeper

In their latest pre-season friendly, Liverpool secured an impressive 4-0 win over Leicester City.

The first half saw Jurgen Klopp’s side dominate, with goals from Darwin Nunez, Bobby Clark, and Diogo Jota, putting them 3-0 ahead at halftime.

During the match, there was a noteworthy save, although the details of the save were not described in the provided information.

It’s mentioned that Liverpool made significant changes during halftime, and one of the substitutes, Ben Doak, who came on for Mohamed Salah, contributed to Liverpool’s victory by scoring the fourth goal midway through the second half, adding further shine to the Reds’ triumph.

Dominik Szoboszlai, the recent Liverpool signing from RB Leipzig in a reported £60 million deal, also appeared during the second half of the match.

The Hungary international showcased his talent by nearly scoring one of the most spectacular goals of the pre-season.

However, his effort was thwarted by an extraordinary save from Leicester goalkeeper Mads Hermansen, who pulled off an astonishing stop to deny Szoboszlai’s attempt.

In a daring move, Dominik Szoboszlai noticed the Leicester goalkeeper, Mads Hermansen, positioned far from his goal line and decided to take an audacious shot close to the halfway line.

Realizing the danger of the situation and not wanting to be humiliated, Hermansen swiftly ran back towards his goal, never taking his eyes off the ball.

As he approached his area, the Denmark Under-21 international came to terms with the fact that he needed to save the ball without using his hands.

Using his quick thinking, he refrained from risking a potential handball outside the penalty area, which could lead to him being sent off.

Hermansen subsequently leapt and diverted the ball behind his goal with an unorthodox diving header.

Yes, you did read that correctly – a diving header.

Mads by name and by nature!

It’s not every day you see a goalkeeper save a shot with a diving header.

Full marks to Szoboszlai for the initial attempt, too. That would have been some goal.
