Save of the season by Peruvian U-20

[VIDEO PICK: Super Stop] The most unbelievable save this season happened at the South American U-20 Championships in Argentina last week.

Feel free to quibble about how, and why, the Peruvian keeper found himself so far outside his own box while trailing Uruguay 3-2 on Thursday.

The pair of astronomically impressive saves Angelo Campos makes by ditching those subjects entirely and staying focused on his job -- keeping the ball from crossing his own line -- will have you grateful the 19-year-old ended up where he did.

If Campos has two or three moments of genius like these during an entire lifetime spent between the posts it will have been a career well spent for those among us who appreciate good theater.

And the keeper’s heroics while wearing the captain’s armband were rewarded when his Peruvian teammates tied this game in the 85th minute, and it finished 3-3.

Effort such as this deserves at least a point …

    that 2nd save should have resulted in a penalty kick.
