Watch: David Ospina makes incredible double save on Aguero, Messi

Saturday June 27th, 2015

Despite all of the attacking talent on display in Argentina's Copa America quarterfinal against Colombia, it was a goalkeeper that turned in the top highlight early on.

Colombia and Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina came up with a tremendous first-half double save, preventing Sergio Aguero and Lionel Messi from opening the scoring in their clash in Chile.

Ospina first went low to make a kick save after Aguero tried to one-time home following a near-post run. With the ball popped straight in the air, Messi was first to meet it, only to have Ospina quickly react and make a lunging, two-handed save on the Barcelona superstar, preventing his header from finding the back of the seemingly vacated net.

Argentina wound up prevailing on penalty kicks in heart-stopping fashion and will meet Brazil or Paraguay in the semifinals. The other half of the semis has Chile playing Peru.
