Kyle Walker’s INCREDIBLE bicycle-kick goal-line clearance saves Manchester City as they beat Liverpool on penalties to win the Community Shield

Kyle Walker was Manchester City‘s hero at Wembley after producing an incredible goalline clearance to stop Mo Salah from scoring an injury-time winner.

Salah had seen his first effort saved by goalkeeper Claudio Bravo at the end of a mazy run but headed the rebound towards the vacant goal. 

Liverpool fans were ready to celebrate but Walker had other ideas and showed incredible athleticism to sprint back and then launch himself airborne and bicycle kick the ball clear.
