Thibaut Courtois is one of the greats when it comes to saving penalties.
The Real Madrid goalkeeper saved his fifth spot-kick of 2022 when he denied Alphonso Davies during Belgium's World Cup game against Canada on Wednesday night.
It was the ninth penalty Courtois has faced this year.

His stop saw Courtois improve his penalty-saving ratio to a remarkable 55% in 2022.
Coutois famously thwarted Lionel Messi from the spot during Real's run to last season's Champions League final.
He also saved penalties from Athletic Bilbao's Raul Garcia and Valencia's Goncalo Guedes last season.
The 30-year-old's most recent penalty save prior to the World Cup has been against Celtic right-back Josip Juranovic in the UEFA Champions League earlier this month.
