Motis heroics were made all the more remarkable given he performed them in front of escort legendary Steaua goalkeeper Helmut Ducadam, the clubs honorary president.

After the match, Ludogorets coach Georgi Dermendviev revealed escort bayan Moti often has a go in goal during training.
Sometimes during training sessions we practice penalties and he has a habit of going in goal for fun, he said. I asked him whether he wanted to take the gloves it and he agreed.
Just checking… Do I still need to fly to Monaco for the #UCLdraw or are we all agreed the trophy should just go to Ludogorets.— Carrie Brown (@CarrieBrownTV) August 27, 2014
I told him not to jump prematurely and wait. He has a good instinct and reaction. But after all this is incredible. He has never even trained with gloves.
Now it seems Ludogorets regular goalkeeper Stoyanov faces a fight to regain his place as No. 1 at the club.
Yes, it seems we have too many goalkeepers in the team, he joked. I was not afraid when I saw him putting on the gloves. There is no guarantee I would have done better.
I have no words to describe this game. I had to make the foul, the Steaua player was too quick. But this is our dream, this is the result of sweat and hard work.
Ludogorets now takes its place in the draw on Thursday alongside European powerhouses Real Madrid — the defending champions — Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus.
