Hart saves his international teammate’s spot kick but the goalkeeper was lucky to still be on the pitch.
Football can be a cruel game.
Chelsea were deservedly awarded a penalty in their Premier League match with Manchester City, after Joe Hart felled Demba Ba in the box.
The visitors felt that the England goalkeeper should have been dismissed for the challenge but Hart escaped without punishment.
Inevitably, the keeper dusted himself down and saved England teammate Frank Lampard’s penalty, which would have been his 200th goal for Chelsea.
City currently lead 2-0.
