Although Real Madrid lost the game 2-0, Keylor Navas had a nice farewell to his team and his home of five years, with Costa Rican flags accompanying him. There was a flag near him at the start of the match and another in the official bar of the team, dismissing him, the most important player in Tico history.
He was the first on the field to warm-up and soak up the memories of his last game in that place. Throughout the game he reminded us that he is one of the world’s very best goalkeepers.
He controlled a shot from Marc Barta at 28 minutes and another from Giovani Lo Celso at 34 minutes. Marcelo, one of his teammates and friends, came to congratulate him at that point, extending his hand.
Keylor received a standing ovation from supporters at the end of the match. He knelt in the middle of the field, thanked God, and then waved goodbye. He spend 1,699 days with the team, always showing professional behavior. His era will always be remembered.
