Watch keeper take on opponent TWICE in his own penalty area and comes out of it like a hero after filthy nutmeg

THIS IS the moment a goalkeeper took on an opponent TWICE inside his penalty area, coming out on top while also executing a filthy nutmeg.

The Braga U23 side were taking on Rio Ave on Tuesday.

Braga held on to beat Rio Ave 2-1

And Braga found themselves with a 2-1 lead nearing full-time.

But that didn’t stop goalkeeper Joao Carvalho, 18, from taking a huge risk which could’ve cost his team the win.

Carvalho made up for a heavy touch by sitting down Rio Ave’s Aymen Bouzidi, chopping the ball back.

In an effort to spare himself anymore embarrassment, Bouzidi got back to his feet and tried to pinch the ball off the keeper again.

But Carvalho had other ideas as he rolled the ball through Bouzidi’s legs before clearing the danger.

And fans have praised “ballsy” Carvalho.

One said: “Pretty ballsy when you’re just leading by one at the 89th minute.”

Another replied: “The decision is completely stupid but the skill is admirable.”

A third added: “I’d honestly just walk out of the field if I were that striker.”

Carvalho is a highly rated shot-stopper.

He has made two appearances for Portugal’s U20s, playing 90 minutes in the losses to Poland and Italy last year.
