Arsenal's goalkeeping search may lead them to Brazil!

Szczesny Training

Wojciech Szczęsny beware, as Arsenal may have found their future goalkeeper - in Brazil.

Arsenal have had trouble replacing the likes of David Seaman and Jens Lehmann, with the jury still out on existing stopper Wojciech Szczęsny. But now Arsenal's search for a first-class keeper might be over.

An outstanding double save in a Brazilian league match has surely alerted Arsenal to this top talent.

Trouble is, the 'goalkeeper' (seen in the white vest standing by the post), who denied the opposition two clear goalscoring opportunities in this recent game, was actually the sponge man who came on to help his keeper!

When the game restarted, the keeper was beaten, leaving the sponge man to literally save the day.

Arsenal could surely do worse.

You can see the 'keeper' in action below:

Amazingly, the goal wasn't actually given!
