Sweden goalkeeper Andreas Isaksson overhead kick save

Sweden goalkeeper Andreas Isaksson pulled off a stunning overhead kick save to deny Lionel Messi a goal in last night's international friendly with Argentina.

After breaking the offside trap and dinking the ball over former Manchester City flop Isaksson, Messi was poised to celebrate - until the Swedish Superman raced back to acrobatically clear the ball off the line.
