Not wearing gloves, the Ivory Coast star tries to block a few Wesley Sneijder shots—mainly body-checking them rather than stretching his arms out.
It's an option should Fernando Muslera be incapacitated at any stage during a match and an outfield player need to step in.
Mind you, in the footage, it looks as if Sneijder is wearing goalkeeping gloves as well. Perhaps he'd also been trying his luck between the sticks.
