Higuita, also known as “El Loco” which could be translated as “The Madman”, was one of the most amazing goalkeepers in history, maybe the most unusual one as well. He has been well known thanks to his unique movement, the “scorpion kick”. Seriously, that was one of the most hilarious and rare thinks to ever happen in a soccer court. Just see the images and you will maybe think it is a joke or something, but actually this happened in real life in a soccer court while thousands of people were watching the match. This happened in a match between Colombia and England. This Colombian goalkeeper also had a weir strategy of going to the middle of the court with the ball as if he was an attacker. Now, how comes the rest of the team didn’t do anything to stop him? Maybe there was an agreement to do such a thing but, dude, this is just hilarious.
If you look some of the many videos of his risky strategies, you will see that in fact Rene Higuita was a soccer player like no other in the soccer history. Not only because he was risky but actually you will not probably see other goalkeepers in soccer history doing that thing of going to the rival archery one their own so often. It is interesting because this soccer player was able to score in some Penalties and there were times in which indeed Colombia won matches thanks to his decisions. It is very cool to know more about soccer in history and Colombia has always something to offer for sure.
