Stefan Frei, your goalkeeping moment in the sun is over, step aside. Enter Brazilian club Ceara SC mascot Vovo. Like Frei, he’s got a beard, hops and incredible reactions. Unlike Frei, he’s not a real person. Unless it’s a guy with big head syndrome. In which case, I sincerely apologize.

He springs like a jaguar and parries like an Olympic fencer. What’s more, he entertains and saves lives simultaneously, like Deadpool. My favorite part of this video is the people in the first row behind the goal. While they all duck and cover their faces, Vovo runs toward the danger like he’s in the marine corps. Vovo, a desperate hero for a desperate time.
