Re: FAO NICK POPE

A tall keeper will naturally use their legs when the ball is low and near their body. Adjusting you legs in that way is quicker than using your hands and also is likely to prevent the ball going through your legs. Just basic goalkeeping really - watch De Gea- he does exactly the same
