Tom Starke Save: Bayern Munich Goalkeeper Stops PK With Face (VIDEO)

By Jose Martinez, Complex Sports

It's a goalkeeper's job to stop the ball from hitting the back of the net by any means necessary.

Even if it means laying out and making a save with your face, which is exactly what happened to Tom Starke of Bayern Munich on Timmy Simon's penalty kick attempt.

That's gotta hurt, but it still pales in comparison to the agony of defeat.
