Allstate Save of the Game: Jesus Corona, Mexico (78’)

Honduras found it difficult to mount a sustained offense during its 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinal against Mexico on Thursday night, so Alexander Lopez decided to do something a little different.  In the 78th minute, rather than float a left-sided corner kick into the box for a teammate, he saw goalkeeper Jesus Corona positioned slightly away from the goal line.  The Olimpia midfielder then attempted to curl the ball inside what appeared to be an unmanned near post.  Corona made the block by diving into the netting, preserving the Tricolor’s 1-0 lead and making the Allstate Save of the Game.
