Resurrecting the scorpion kick save

As a goalie, it takes a certain level of bravery and/or stupidity to perform the scorpion kick save. Obviously the goalies in the following video practiced this move in training several times before trying it in a game. As a goalie your sole responsibility is to keep the ball out of the net.  However, if you want to make a name for yourself all you have to do is the scorpion kick. Rene Higuita of Columbia was the first to do it in 1995 and now it was recently duplicated.
