The England international was between the sticks for tonight’s crucial EFL Cup semi-final second-leg against Jurgen Klopp’s side at Anfield, and after a dull first-half, the tie entered its final hour with Southampton leading 1-0 from the first-leg.
With Liverpool knowing they needed at least one goal to force extra-time, Emre Can tried a shot from the edge of the area – and every soul inside the packed stadium held their breath as Forster fumbled, before quickly pawing the ball clear:

Every cup and league game in England now sees the referee armed with goal-line technology to tell if the ball crossed the line, but apparently not all of it had – thankfully for Forster.
How defining a moment could that be in both teams’ season?
