Game One Highlights

If you missed the first broadcast, you can still go back and see the highlights on NextVR, where you can see the winning goal, a header off a corner kick. Tell me if I’m delusional but standing next to the goalkeeper for the goal, I have to say it looked like he should have stopped it.
