Martin Dubravka responds after Newcastle star’s collision with Cristiano Ronaldo
While Nick Pope has taken Martin Dubravka’s starting spot at Newcastle United after the latter’s arrival, the goalkeeper continues to play a pivotal role for his country.
While on international duty on Friday night, the 34-year-old was involved in a rather high-profile incident, and he is a key member of the Slovakia setup.
A collision between Dubravka and Cristiano Ronaldo, a player Dubravka is familiar with from their time spent together at Manchester United, occurred.Dubravka has already addressed the situation, saying that the Portugal superstar was fortunate to escape a red card.
Martin Dubravka’s comments on his match against Cristiano RonaldoWhen Ronaldo’s studs were coming towards his face as the two battled for a loose ball, the Newcastle keeper claims he closed his eyes and hoped for the best.When asked by reporters about the incident, Dubravka stated, “I just closed my eyes and prayed that he wouldn’t Һit me in the face as well,” according to statements obtained by The Chronicle. I didn’t bother to see where he was pointing his studs.
As a striker, he must chase after balls like these when the goalkeeper closes his eyes and focuses solely on blocking the shot. For once, I find myself not blaming him.
Despite being the undisputed starter for the Saints since his arrival, Pope hasn’t exactly shone for England this year.There is no indication that Eddie Howe will be looking to switch goalkeepers anytime soon, but having Dubravka as a backup is a huge one.
The veteran has more than enough Premier League experience, and his resume includes some excellent performances, which made an immediate impression upon his debut in 2018.
Eventually Pope will recover from his recent performance slump, but in the meanwhile Howe has options.
