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

Sean Swaby@seanswabyUK 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?
