Manchester City: Fans revel in stunning Kyle Walker clearance

One moment in football can sometimes dictate the outcome of a result, and the Community Shield provided such an example.

With the game tied at 1-1 and heading into the final seconds, Mohamed Salah’s header over Claudio Bravo looked to have beaten the Chilean keeper, but then Manchester City right-back Kyle Walker arrived onto the scene.

The England international managed to produce a stunning overhead clearance to boot the ball well away from danger and ultimately send the game to penalties, which City won 5-4.

Such a spectacular piece of defending saw Walker win plenty of plaudits for his acrobatic effort as City fans stormed to social media to praise the former Tottenham full-back for what proved to be a match-defining clearance.

Here is what some City supporters had to say on Twitter…

Despite his heroics, City appear to be in the market for a new right-back, with BBC Sport reporting that Pep Guardiola’s side have submitted a bid for Juventus defender Joao Cancelo.
