Watch: Kaizer Chiefs Goalkeeper Recreates Iconic Higuita Scorpion Kick

Kaizer Chiefs 1-0 Black Aces. A fairly innocuous result from the South African PSL that wouldn't usually garner much attention.

However it did contain one of the most audacious pieces of skill by Kaizer Chief's goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune. Khune pulled off a Rene Higuita-style scorpion-kick save during the match and later took to instagram to share this wonderous piece of skill.


What made this save/piece of skill even more crazy was the fact that the game was in the final minute of stoppage time with his side holding a slender 1-0 lead.

Off course the original by Rene Higuita will always be the best!

The Kaizer Chiefs, of course, were the inspiration for our post on football teams that sound like indie bands. Although we know the football team came first.
