Dani Alves Proves He's More Than Just A Right Back

PSG's run-of-the-mill 4-1 victory over Sochaux in the Coupe de France took an extremely interesting turn in the final seconds when PSG goalie Kevin Trapp was sent off for a foul on a clear goal-scoring opportunity.
PSG had used all their subs at this point, so right back Dani Alves (admittedly one of the most versatile players in the world in terms of skill-set) put on the gloves and the different-colored shirt and set about trying to block a free kick.

I want nothing more in the world than for that free kick to have gone over the wall, forcing Alves to do some goalkeeping. Would he have made a comfortable save? An amazing save? A howler? Would he not even have had a chance? We'll never know.
