The Costa Rican goalkeeper is one of PSG’s most important players this season. Keylor Navas saved the club against Barça by stopping a penalty from Lionel Messi. A few days later, he did it again against Lille in the Coupe de France. In an interview with PSG television, the goalkeeper explained his secret.
The Costa Rican goalkeeper ensures that he does not try to “intimidate the opponent”, which is usual with many goalkeepers.
“I’m not the one taking the penalty, but I’m trying to concentrate,” said Navas on PSG TV, then revealed his formula for stopping the penalties. I trust God to give me the peace and quiet to make the right decision. And I tell myself that I will stop the penalty. Often times I can’t do it, many players are very skilled and shoot well. But if I have the opportunity to stop it, I do my best to take advantage of it. Thank goodness I have done this several times already. I’m not trying to intimidate the opponent, it’s a moment of tension for everyone, you just have to prepare, understand the situation and give everything ”.
