VIDEO: Ball-boy helps China's goalkeeper save penalty by telling him which way to dive

Get this young fella a pair of goalkeeping gloves.

Stephen White, a 12-year-old Australian ball-boy, made a great call during China's 1-0 win over Saudi Arabia in their Asian Cup meeting on Saturday.

With the game level at 0-0, Saudi Arabia were awarded a penalty and the Chinese stopper Wang Dalei looked for guidance from the young ball fetcher who clearly motions for him to dive to his left.

Naif Hazazi's spot-kick then went exactly where the youngster had predicted, much to the delight of the Chinese players who went on to win the game 1-0.

After the game, Stephen told ABC: "He turned around and then he like held on to the net and he said 'left or right', and I said 'pardon', and he said 'left or right' and I said 'left'."

The advice did not go unnoticed by Dalei and Co. who have invited Stephen to train with them last night as thanks for the tip-off.
