Andrew Redmayne, Australia Goalkeeper, Penalty Shootout (and Social Media) Hero

FOOTBALL – Australia went to penalties on Monday, June 13, to get rid of Peru and snatch its qualification for the World Cup in Qatar (0-0 (5-4 pens)). And in this exercise, Andrew Redmayne, the Australian goalkeeper, particularly distinguished himself and ignited social networks with his “dance steps” which saved his selection.

Unexpected guest of this decisive match, Andrew Redmayne entered the field exclusively for the penalty shootout. To destabilize his opponents, the goal has adopted a very original strategy: move in all directions on the goal line. What worked. Peruvian striker Alex Valera saw his shot denied by the goalkeeper.

Redmayne, who became the hero of the meeting, was then able to exult with his teammates whom he is sending to the 2022 World Cup. The images of the player gesturing like a puppet in front of the corn also went around social networks and were instantly hijacked by the internet users.

However, this is not the first time that the goalkeeper has used this technique to destabilize his opponents. Internet users have also unearthed images of Redmayne from other matches.
