Scorpion kick is one of the most breathtaking and jaw dropping acrobatic movevemtn a goalkeeper can perform between the sticks, made famous by the Columbian star keeper René Higuita. And now, another keeper has seemingly mastered the gruelling act, and its none other than Keylor Navas!
The former Real Madrid champion keeper, who now plays for Paris Saint Germain after falling down the pecking order against Thibaut Courtois, was seen performing the deft bicycle kick during his past training days with the Galacticos.

Navas, 32, is seen masterfully performing a scorpion kick to save teammate Marcelo’s low volley in the training grounds, as the Costa Rican’s buddies are seen laughing in amusement.
The Costa Rica international joined Los Blancos in 2014 after activation of his €10 million release clause at Levante, and became one of the best goalkeepers in Europe under Zinedine Zidane. Along with Lag Liga in 2017, Navas won three consecutive UEFA CHampions League trophies in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
After the arrival of Courtois from Chelsea at Santiago Bernabéu, the Real fan favourite keeper parted ways with the team, and joined the Ligue 1 giants this transfer window on a four year contract.
