QPR goalkeeper, who is wanted at the Emirates Stadium, saves Forlan’s spot kick in Brazil’s Confederations Cup semi-final win.
There can’t have been another period of history in which Brazil’s number was goalkeeper was on the books of a club in the second tier of English football.
Julio Cesar was one of the few players to emerge from QPR’s car crash of a season with his reputation in tact and the 33-year-old is certain to leave Loftus Road this summer, with Arsenal thought to be leading to chase for his signature (at least according to Goal.com).
The Selecao stopper will have impressed watching suitors on Wednesday night, making this fine penalty save to deny former Man United striker Diego Forlan in Brazil’s 2-1 Confederations Cup win over Uruguay.
Cesar will most likely be up against the might of the Spanish in the final on Sunday and more heroics could see clubs across the continent up their interest.
