Must-see to believe: Bicycle kick save in ice hockey

Who says the FOX Soccer Blog must strictly be 100% soccer-based?

Well, common sense, that’s who. But still, you have to check out this incredible save by Calgary Flames goaltender Reto Berra of the NHL.

This past Wednesday (so we’re a bit late, sue us), Berra pulled off one of the most stunning saves of the year, stopping a shot by Columbus Blue Jackets defender Jack Johnson with a bicycle kick, or as some hockey folks apparently call it “going around the world with the pads.”

Impressive stuff, hockey. But can you top René Higuita’s memorable scorpion kick save?

We all have our favorite moments throughout the history of soccer. For some, it’ll be a last-gasp or incredible goal, or for others, an outstanding piece of skill. It could even be a comeback victory, or a dramatic promotion.

What Richard Swarbrick, of the upcoming Fantasista footballing art movement, has done is capture a select few of these moments and put his own unique spin on it.

Take a look at the excellent video above, which includes moments from Cruyff, Zlatan, van Basten, Gascoigne, Higuita, Pele, Maradona, Zidane and Baggio.

You can check out Richard’s spectacular portfolio - including the famous 'Gareth Bale v Inter Milan' piece - here, there and everywhere.
