Chelsea keeper Cech reveals texts from fellow pros over THAT save

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech admits his phone was full of congratulatory texts after his stunning save in their FA Cup quarterfinal win over Manchester United.

Cech denied Javier Hernandez with an incredible second-half save.

"It was an important moment in the game, I'm sure a lot of people could already see the ball in the goal, so I was glad I got enough on it to push it over," he told chelseafc.com.

"I got a few messages from other players and keepers, it's great that people can appreciate the save. Even in the first half with the shot from Hernandez, when the ball moved away from me, it was a scary moment and it took a lot of energy for me to kick the ball away, so I'm pleased with the way I played."
