Kiko Casilla is single-handedly keeping the magic of the cup alive in English football and hes doing it one pie at a time.

Safe Hands: Twitter Reacts as Kiko Casilla Saves Fan's Pie in Leeds' Carabao Cup Win Over Salford

The ex-Real Madrid keeper has written himself into League Cup history after one fan caught the moment he reunited a supporter and his pie during Leeds Uniteds 3-0 win over Salford City in the Carabao Cup first round.  
Speaking with the ​Yorkshire Evening Post, the man behind the video described the bizarre situation.
Ian said: "We scored, the pies went in the air. Kiko picked it up and handed it back. It was a cheese and onion pie which the fan ate in celebration."
The glorious moment has come in a time where B-teams and condescending attitudes overshadow the true importance of domestic cups to English football.
These early ties throw up fixtures of giants against minnows, producing spectacular upsets and unforgettable moments - both footballing and not.
Only an English cup tie could bring a one-time Spanish international, who made 43 appearances for ​Real Madrid, to League Two debutants Salford where hes returning pies to the ​Leeds faithful.
A penny should be spared for the thoughts of Marcelo Bielsa, who can be forgiven for looking back at his days of taking the Argentinian national side to a Copa America final and not quite understanding what has happened.
Interestingly enough, this is not the first time a pie has been the centre of attention in an English cup tie. 
Many will remember the FA Cup fifth round fixture between Sutton United and ​Arsenal in 2017 and the Piegate saga that followed after the TV cameras showed goalkeeper Wayne Shaw eating a pie on the bench.
