Joe Hart definitely saved England a point on Tuesday in a tough World Cup Qualifying match against Slovenia. The Three Lions locked up first place in Group F but very well could have lost the match if it weren’t for the Manchester City loanee's incredible performance.
Hart's best save came at the start of the second half, when he made a seemingly impossible leap across goal to paw away a deflection that was heading for the top right corner. It was right on the line as Joe slapped it up onto the crossbar, which prevented it from reaching the back of the net. Take a look:
Simply incredible. Our Joe has been impressing with Torino recently. With five games played, sixteen saves, and two clean sheets, City fans are starting to wonder if he will make a return one day. He are some quotes from his post-match interview with ITV:
On his performance: “Best one in a while. It’s hard to say. I was asked to do quite a bit. It was down to a few errors from us.”
On the squad: “We’re going to improve. We’re a young team. We’ve dug in in an intense atmosphere and we took a point. On the night it’s a difficult result but we’ve got to look at the bigger picture — we’re trying to qualify for Russia.”
Joe Hart will hope to continue his fantastic form this weekend with Torino, who face Palermo next Monday.
We miss you, Joe.
