The Only Goalkeeper In The Entire History Of The World Cup To Make 4 Penalty Shoot- Out Saves

Dominik Livakovic is deserving of having a statue built in his honor for all that he is accomplishing for Croatia during this World Cup.

Few may have known or heard of him before the start of this competition, but it's obvious that his game-winning goals in goal are helping him build a name for himself in Qatar.

The 27-year-old has helped Croatia reach the World Cup semifinals for the second consecutive tournament. If he finally leads the small footballing nation to their first World Cup trophy, don't be surprised.

Livakovic made a series of incredible saves, one of which was to stop Rodrygo during the penalty shootouts, proving his ability to handle the pressure against one of, if not the clear favorite (Brazil). 

Dominik played 120 minutes, stopped 11 shots, seven of which were close range, made 26 passes with an 81 percent accuracy rate, and only let in one goal. 

Livakovic made history by being the first and only goaltender in World Cup history to make four saves in a penalty shootout after denying Rodrygo's penalty kick. 

If his performances thus far are any indication, a major club in Europe might make a bid for this exceptional goalie as early as January. Currently, he represents Dinamo Zagreb.
