Video of Cat Defending the Goal While Playing Indoor Football

I Can't Stop Watching This Athletic Cat Save Shot After Shot in a Game of Indoor Football

Chris Dixon, a 23-year-old YouTube personality and football fanatic, may want to consider watching his back on the pitch! Recently, he shared a video to Twitter of he and his cat — Meownuel Neuer, a play on German football player Manuel Neuer's name — playing a casual round of indoor football. As a former player myself, I've seen dozens of standout goalies, but no human being on two legs could possibly keep up with Meownuel Neuer's literal cat-like reflexes.

In the astounding clip, we see Chris take a few shots using a tiny, cat-sized ball. From out of nowhere, Meownuel darts on-screen to protect the goal each and every time. The incredible video was posted on May 18 and immediately took off on social media — at press time it's racked up over 9.4 million views and 273,300 "likes."

We have a feeling this kitty might be getting a few calls from teams like Barcelona or Liverpool any day now!
