Australian hero keeper says water-bottle act was ‘kill or be killed’

AUSTRALIAN goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne says it was “kill or be killed” after video emerged of him tossing away a bottle of his Peruvian opposite number during the penalty shootout win that sent the Socceroos to the World Cup. The 33-year-old Redmayne became an Internet sensation after dancing his way along the goal line as Peru’s players prepared to take their penalty kicks in an attempt to put them off. He was lauded as a national hero in Australia with his save of Alex Valera’s spot-kick that gave the Socceroos a 5-4 win on penalties on Tuesday in Doha and a place at a fifth straight World Cup.—AFP
