Manuel Neuer pulls off near-impossible reflex save

There's a reason why Manuel Neuer came so close to winning the Ballon d'Or.

The Germany goalkeeper, the only player in his position among FIFA 16's top 10 rated players, pulled off a stop against Poland that few (if any) others could have achieved.

Neuer has held the Indian sign over Bayern Munich team-mate Robert Lewandowski, and the same player was left scratching his head again.


Lewandowski had actually broken his hoodoo against Neuer with this diving header from Kamil Grosicki's stunning outside-of-the-boot cross.

But just when he thought he'd brought the Poles level, Neuer showed superhuman reflexes to deny the former Borussia Dortmund striker.

We've watched this a dozen times and still can't believe our eyes.
