It’s not often that goalkeepers score in soccer matches. The opportunity usually only presents itself in the final minute of a game, where a club that is trailing is forced to bring everyone forward in an attempt to tie the game.
That’s exactly what happened in a recent South African Premier Division match between Baroka FC and Maritzburg United.
Baroka had a corner-kick opportunity in the game’s final minute, and the ball bounced to goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke. Running away from the goal, Masuluke tried a bicycle kick to flip the ball back toward the goal, and it landed right in the net.
The goal was spectacular, and his celebration was pretty good, too. Marshawn Lynch probably would approve of it.
