Thibaut Courtois – one of the best goalkeepers in the world, a Premier League and La Liga champion, a closet centre-forward?

When Courtois stepped forward to take a penalty in the shootout at Wembley, understandably, eyebrows were raised. Few will have been surprised when he ballooned his effort over the bar and into the stand.

At that moment, it was difficult to believe that the Belgium international could ever play anywhere but between the sticks – but a video posted by Chelsea on their Instagram page suggests that he could.

Courtois had a quick look up, steadied his nerves, and beat his goalkeeping counterpart with an expert lob. Have a look at this.
