Mignolet keen to prevent repeat of Suarez goal

21 March 2011 03:30
Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has vowed to learn the lessons of his duel with Liverpool hot-shot Luis Suarez. The 22-year-old Belgium international was beaten by the Uruguayan's audacious 77th-minute strike from the tightest of angles in his side's 2-0 Barclays Premier League defeat by the Reds on Sunday. Mignolet admitted he did not expect Suarez to shoot from such an unlikely position, and will study video footage of the goal when he returns from international duty in an effort to ensure he is never caught out like that again. He said: "I expected a cross because obviously he's right footed, but he smashed it in from a very small angle. "It's a good goal. I think we had lost the game before that, though. "As a goalkeeper you always have to learn from those things. I will have a look at the video when I get back from being with the national team and I will learn from it."
