Part of my rational was that it was in a cup final. I've seen Reina, De Gea, Casillas and Buffon all made similar if not even better saves but in a lesser occasion. That save was as good as a goal for us. We were flagging and they could well have gone on to win if that had gone in.
Zidane's goal in the 2002 CL final is widely considered the best Champions league goal due to the sheer class and the ocassion, and similarly Maradona's second against England in '86 is ranked amongst the best ever, even though the likes of Messi, Ben Arfa and Neymar have produced similar efforts in domestic leagues.

So, football only exists in England, OP?
Ignorance is bliss.
Awesome video. Amazing that someone of Buffon's height can get down so quickly to make instinctive low saves. An outstanding European keeper of the last decade plus, shame never came to England. Casillas would probably get a mention - remember the save he made against Sevilla.
Seaman save is one of the best FA Cup saves, the way his body was and to claw it back. Cech's was a good save but I would have expected a keeper of his experience to save that.
