On loan from Paris Saint-Germain, Keylor Navas signed a clean sheet in his first Premier League game and played a key role in the



What a first!

Four saves, a clean sheet, and a man of the match trophy: this is how Keylor Navas began his adventure at Nottingham Forest this Sunday.

Against Leeds, the new team of the Puerto Rican goalkeeper won by the smallest of margins (1-0).

On loan from Paris Saint-Germain until the end of the season, Keylor Navas made a strong impression from his first seconds in the Forest jersey.

In the second minute of play, the goalkeeper folded perfectly on his left to stop Luis Sinisterra's attempt.

Less than 2 minutes and already decisive!

Just before half-time, he then intervened in front of a powerful strike from Wilfried Gnonto, to keep his team in front.

It was a one and only goal from Welsh international Brennan Johnson, in the 13th minute and on a superb volley, which allowed Nottingham to win.

Spikes in the face

But Keylor Navas' afternoon was also marked by a big contact with his central defender, Willy Bolly.

By intervening in the area, the Ivorian international hit the face of the former Madrid player with his crampons.

Result: a beautiful red trace near the goalkeeper's left ear.

Not enough to spoil a successful first.

“We had very important individual exploits, in particular with the stops of Keylor Navas, reacted his trainer Steve Cooper after the meeting.

I loved the way he handled the match, we really saw that he had experience.

Everyone knows his record, but he still wanted to be there today to show his level.
