Costa Rican Goalkeeper Keylor Navas Trains by Saving Tennis Balls Hit by Pro

Sean SwabyUK Staff WriterJuly 2, 2014


Costa Rica have unquestionably been one of the World Cup's most pleasant surprises so far. 

Few gave them a chance to get out of a tough group with England, Italy and Uruguay, yet the Costa Ricans are in the quarter-finals. 

They wouldn't be where they are without goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

What's his secret? Saving hard-hit tennis balls hit by world No. 33 Pablo Andujar, of course. 

Stealing one of Petr Cech's moves, perhaps?
