Watch: Arsenal Goalie David Ospina Pulls Off A Wonder Save For Colombia Against Paraguay

Arsenal fans will be hoping that goalkeeper David Ospina can replicate this awesome form if he stays at the Emirates next season.

Now firmly usurped by Petr Cech between the sticks at Arsenal, Ospina has been linked with a move away from the club, with Turkish side Besiktas apparently keen on offering the 27-year-old adequate game-time.

Judging by his performance earlier this morning in the 2016 Copa America though, he could well fight for his place at club level yet.

Having kept a clean sheet in his national side’s 2-0 over the United States in Group A, David Ospina could be forgiven for feeling confident heading into the crucial second group game against Paraguay.

With a two goal advantage courtesy of AC Milan’s Carlos Bacca and Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez heading into the final 30 minutes, Colombia looked to have progressed to the knockout stages of the American Cup.

Victor Ayala whipped in a dangerous corner, with the corresponding header seemingly on it’s way to the top corner of the Colombian’s net.

Up steps David Ospina.

Though Paraguay would claw back a goal, Ospina’s side would prevail 2-1, topping Group A in the process.
