Socceroos goalkeeper and World Cup qualifying hero Andrew Redmayne has been hilariously lampooned by a Peruvian rodeo clown.
In a clip uploaded to Twitter, the South American entertainer was decked out in a ‘Grey Wiggle’ Socceroos kit featuring Redmayne’s name and squad number 12.
He can be seen whipping the crowd into a frenzy, with Redmayne the man Peru football fans love to hate following his heroics in Doha in a dramatic penalty-shootout back in June.
As the clip continues, the cheeky Redmayne impersonator can be seen scrambling to safety as a fired up bull chased him up a pole.
The video ends with the bull getting the better of Redmayne – unlike in Doha, where the 33-year-old became a national sporting treasure after saving a vital penalty to secure Australia’s spot in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Redmayne attracted international headlines for his bizarre tactics on the goal-line with so much at stake.
It paid off deluxe when the Sydney FC shot-stopper guessed right to save an effort from Peruvian striker Alex Valera, sparking euphoric celebrations from his Socceroos teammates, coaching staff and back home in Australia.
Coach Graham Arnold displayed nerves of steel to throw Redmayne into the fray against the South Americans.
Certain to be sacked if Australia lost, the A-League journeyman came off the bench with three minutes left for skipper Mat Ryan before the end of extra time.
Once it was showtime, Redmayne danced along the line, waving his arms furiously, wiggling his hips and moving from side to side at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium in comical scenes for many football fans.
The key moment was the 12th penalty of the night, Peru’s sixth.

Redmayne produced his routine again, denying Valera from 12 yards and a sporting star was born.
In now iconic scenes, Redmayne stood his mouth wide open as his teammates rushed in to mob him.
‘I’m a bit lost for words,’ Redmayne declared post game.
‘I’m no hero. I just played my role. ‘It’s a team game, it’s a team effort.
‘At the end of the day, it’s a flip of the coin — it’s either right or left.’
