19-year-old Manchester City goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu goes crazy for the Republic of Ireland


Manchester City on-line goalkeeper Gavin Bajunu pulled off an absolutely outrageous save in the 3-0 win over the Republic of Ireland in Luxembourg.

Stephen Kenny’s side won the World Cup qualifier, courtesy of goals from Shane Duffy, Chidozi, Ogbene and Callum Robinson.

Ireland faced just two shots on target but 19-year-old Bazunu ensured a clean sheet with a spectacular stoppage of 20 minutes into the game.

Olivier Thill’s strike from afar drew away from Josh Cullen and it seemed to nest in the bottom corner.

But Bazunu, who is currently on loan at Portsmouth, spread to his right and incredibly pushed the ball into the palm of the post.

The amazing piece of goalkeeping has gone viral on social media, with the camera angle in the clip seriously satisfying.

Bazunu is competing with Liverpool’s Caoimhín Kelleher but the boys in Green are winning the race to become No. 1 with a series of stellar performances among sticks.

He dropped the entire masterclass in a 1-1 draw with Serbia last month and followed it up with a penalty save against Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal.

The former Shamrock Rovers youngster is making serious waves as a goalkeeper but he is not getting ahead of himself and says he is just doing the job.

Speaking to RTE Sport, Bazunu said: “We struggled a little bit in the first half. I had to do a little bit more, I had to save to make it. My job in the team is to make those crucial saves.

“I saw a hit outside the box; it took Nick, but luckily it took Nick a little bit earlier so I could respond and save it.

“This is a case of putting a lot of hard work in training and hope things will get better in training.

“(In games) there’s a lot going on, so fast, I can’t think of it.”
