Peruvian goalkeeper Angelo Campos made a crucial mistake during the final minutes of a match against Uruguay. But somehow the young keeper managed to redeem himself when it mattered most.

During the South American Under-20 Championships on Thursday, Campos unsuccessfully left the box to clear an incoming pass. With a wide-open net, Uruguayan striker Gonzalo Bueno kicked a slow roller from outside the box as Campos sprinted toward the line. Miraculously, the keeper got a hand on the ball with a diving save.

He wasn't done yet.

With Campos' momentum sending him to the back of the net, Bueno charged at the ball one last time. But Campos completed the double save with his left foot and effectively robbed the striker.

The match ended in a 3-3 draw.
