Scintillating saves rival glorious goals at World Cup

Costa Rica's Keylor Navas saves a spot kick from Greece's Fanis Gekas at the Arena Pernambuco in Recife, June 29, 2014. Costa Rica won 5-3 on penalties. With his team down to 10 men for nearly an hour, the goalie made sure Costa Rica's last line of defense held firm. He came through with a string of stops in regulation and extra time and then made the only save in a penalty shootout to send Costa Rica through to the World Cup quarterfinals on Sunday with a win over Greece.

Algeria's Rais M'Bolhi dives to stop a shot against Germany at the Estadio Beira-Rio in Porto Alegre, June 30, 2014. Germany progressed after extra time. The unsung goalkeeper stopped everything that came his way for 91 minutes, including a bullet from Bastian Schweinsteiger, a prodigious effort from Philipp Lahm, and an on-target header from Thomas Mueller. Four years ago in South Africa, he kept a clean sheet during a 0-0 draw with England and conceded only one goal in two matches played - a stoppage-time score from Landon Donovan in a 1-0 loss to the United States. (Photo / IC)
