Defender does cartwheel to block shot

New, comments

It's gymnastics! It's soccer! It's a cartwheel block!

Sometimes you can't just get in the way of a shot to block it. Simply standing there won't do. And that is where the cartwheel block comes in.

Valencia's Andre Gomes did just that, because when someone is about to shoot the ball at you, your first thought is always, "do a cartwheel."

And by "you," I mean Gomes, because he is the only person who has ever thought to do this. And we thank him for it.
