He lost his place at Arsenal to Petr Cech last year but Gunners fans will be hoping that their No 2 David Ospina sticks around at the Emirates as long as he continues to produce saves like this.

Colombia secured the top spot in their Copa America group last night after a 2-1 win over Paraguay, their second straight victory at the tournament after seeing off USA 2-0 in the opener.

Their win was sealed after goals from Carlos Bacca and James Rodriguez.

However, last night's game could have gone differently were it not for the heroic leap of David Ospina, who flung himself to the far post to claw this bullet header out of the net early in the second half.

 

Paraguay eventually made the breakthrough but Colombia were able to hold on for a crucial win, which seals their place in the knockout stage.
