Courtois saves two and scores a penalty vs PSG

Courtois steals the show after his game-winning penalty kick [VIDEO]

July 25, 2015 By Oscar Rojas
The Belgian shot-stopper was key for Chelsea's first pre-season victory by saving two penalties against Paris Saint-Germain in their International Champions Cup game.

Chelsea was able to cancel Zlatan Ibrahimovic's first half goal to win their first game of the current pre-season against the French champions. The Blues had a very good second half with some of their finest footballers on the pitch, and when it came to the penalty shootout to decide the game, Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois proved his worth by saving a couple of shots and scoring the game winner for Jose Mourinho's side.

Ibra scored the first goal of the game after putting to good use a rebound from one of the posts, but Victor Moses was able to put Chelsea back in contention, netting the game's tying goal 20 minutes into the second half. Colombian striker Radamel Falcao made his debut with the Blues, and he came near to scoring his first goal with his new team during regulation. 

Once the game ended, a penalty shootout was needed to determine the winner. Juan Cuadrado was the first player to miss his shot, but right after the Colombian failed to score, Bahebeck handed the ball to Thibaut Courtois to make it even. Thiago Silva was the next player to have his shot deflected by Courtois, who stepped up and buried his penalty into the upper right hand corner.

Here's what fans and experts had to say about Chelsea's performance during this game.
