The most panic inducing goal-line clearance you'll see today

Cruzeiro defender Egidio demonstrated a unique cocktail of clumsiness, luck and skill when he completed one of the best terrible goal-line clearances ever in his side's 1-1 draw with Palmeiras. A shot off the far post came back out and took a deflection off the defender sending it back towards the net. It looked like he jumped to try and avoid the ball, but when it made contact with him, he adjusted in mid-air and did some kind of ballet move to pull off the clearance at the last second.

Egidio probably couldn't replicate that move if he tried, but that's definitely how you give your goalkeeper a panic attack.
