Manuel Neuer was never going to mark his first game as Germany’s new captain quietly.
The goalie is hardly known for waiting on his line, and sweeper keeper is a pretty tame term when it comes to the Bayern Munich stopper.
While players like Joe Hart might have issues with the ball at their feet – apparently – Neuer is pretty nifty, and showed it in style.
Have a look at this:
Yeah, that was a Cruyff turn. From a goalie.
It’s not the first time Neuer has done that either:

Keep doing what you’re doing Manuel, because you’re the f*cking boss mate.
