David Clifford hailed after stunning goal saves Kerry's All-Ireland skin
MONAGHAN 1-17 KERRY 1-17
What a finish in Clones. What a finish from David Clifford.
Holy Good Lord!
Kerry looked dead, buried and lamented as they trailed by four points in injury time but The Kingdom live to fight another day.
Eammon Fitzmaurice men were on the brink of being knocked clear out of the All-Ireland running but a thrilling finalé sees them live to fight another day.
Conor McManus was pure class for Monaghan, scoring 1-8, but Kerry kept on their tails through-out.
Having lost their Super 8s opener to Galway, Kerry knew a loss would effectively end their season before they even got to Croke Park for the 'neutral ground' fixture with Kildare.
But, not for the first time, Kieran Donaghy had a say in matters. A high ball was pumped in and, with two Monaghan men scrapping with him, Donaghy got a vital touch.
Clifford did the rest.
The teenager arrived on the scene at just the right time and lashed the ball home to make it 1-17 apiece.

Kerry had one last chance to snatch all two points but inexplicably played the ball back down the pitch instead of going for a score.
So it ended in a draw and folks had a chance to get their breath back. When they did, many hopped online to rave about Kerry's teenage scoring sensation.
David Clifford, what’s not to love about that man. Monaghan will be kicking themselves

Hard to believe David Clifford is only 19 years old. He still has another 10+ years of torturing opposition teams left in him. #GAA

Fuck me. David Clifford you beauty. Get Out Of Jail Free card if ever I saw one. Monaghan punished for their time-killing tactics. I’d say the red was gutted, he played a blinder for them.
All to play for in Killarney next weekend. #NeverSayDie

Clifford, Donaghy & Co. will have to beat Kildare in a fortnight's time and hope Galway can defeat Monaghan.
They're not done yet.
