The G.O.A.T. did it again.
If there’s one thing that Nick Rimando’s U.S. National Team teammates know, it’s that the Wall of the Wasatch is not easily breached.
On Saturday, LA Galaxy midfielder Jermaine Jones acknowledged that when he got to his knees and wrapped Rimando in a brief headlock after the RSL shotstopper made yet another highlight-reel save, this one keeping Jones out of the goal in the 73rd minute and that masterful denial is up for MLSsoccer.com’s Save of the Week.
“It was an amazing save,” Jones said after the match. “To keep that out of the goal and then to keep it away from the goal to give me a second chance to finish it. It’s an amazing save. Me and him we know each other for a long time and I know that he’s good on the line. That was an amazing save with that head-butt I showed him that I liked it.”
