Goalkeepers: Don’t Sleep on Villareal’s Cani

For the keen awareness on display, the lightning-quick reaction, and the pure technical brilliance of the strike (from just about exactly midfield), we hereby nominate this goal by Jozy Altidore’s Villareal teammate Ruben Gracia, aka Cani, as the best catch-the-keeper-off-his-line stunner of all time.


Cani’s flourish came in the 50th minute and gave the Yellow Submarine a 2-1 lead. They would go on to win 4-2.

Altidore dressed but did not play. His fellow New Jersey native Giuseppe Rossi started and went the full 90.
