Watch goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne throw away Peru stopper’s cheating water bottle on penalties from Australia’s mad goalkeeper

AUSTRALIA’S dancing goalkeeper hero Andrew Redmayne appeared to throw away the Peru stopper’s water bottle cheat sheet during their World Cup penalty shootout.

The Sydney FC ace came on as a 119th-minute substitute in Monday’s World Cup play-off but played a key role in sending the Socceroos to Qatar.

Redmayne, making only his third international appearance, danced over his line to scare off the opposition after the all-or-nothing tie went to penalties.

And his theatrics worked twice in the 5-4 win as Luis Advincula slammed his shot off the post before Redmayne’s Alex Valera failed in the crucial deciding penalty.

But the ex-Arsenal trialist didn’t just save penalties.

He also sabotaged the efforts of his rival goalkeeper Pedro Gallese.

The Peruvian stopper had a ‘cheat sheet’ attached to his water bottle telling him which way each Australian player used to kick his penalties.

But before Craig Goodwin equalized to make it 2-2 on penalties, Redmayne was seen hurling Gallese’s water bottle over the billboard.

Gallese – who had saved the first penalty in the shootout after deflecting Martin Boyle’s shot – failed to stop another penalty following Redmayne’s intervention.

Gallese is not the first goalkeeper to use the bottle tactic, as Jordan Pickford used the same trick to great effect in England’s 2018 World Cup Round of 16 penalty shootout win over Colombia.

The Everton ace was again in the Nations League clash against Croatia as well as the friendly against the USA in the same year.

And he even repeated his bottle trick for the Euro 2020 final against Italy, where he saved two penalties in the eventual defeat on penalties.

Nottingham Forest star Brice Samba also used the same method during last month’s shootout win in the Championship play-off semi-final against Sheffield United.

Fans loved Redmayne’s antics on social media, with one tweeting, “Absolute elite s***housery from the Wiggle.”

Another commented: “This has got to go in the top 10 Australian sporting moments.”

A third added: “Holy shit this is amazing.”

This fan then remarked, “This is Redders folk legend stuff.”

Meanwhile, one simply stated: “Absolute legend”.
