Top 10 Goals From Goalkeepers


Some strikers are so bad it takes their own goalkeepers to show them how it's done

And we have a market open for Euro 2012 on whether a goalkeeper will score a goal in open play during the tournament! Imagine that! Head here to bet now.

10. Pat Jennings vs Manchester United

Keepers have been scoring goals since TV was in black and white as Arsenal's keeper Pat Jennings shows here as far back at 1967.

9. Un-named Madman

No idea who this crazy keeper is, but he decides to run the length of the pitch and smash it home. Play him up front!!!

8. Peter Schmiehcel vs Wimbledon

When he wasn't dislocating his jaw yelling at his defenders, the Big Dane was scoring goals (10 in total) including this (offside) scissor kisk at Selhurst Park.

7. Un-named American nut-job

Ok, so this is hardly the World Cup final and the standard of play is (embarrassingly) bad, but take nothing away from this crazy keeper's looping effort. Top notch!

6. Tim Howard vs Bolton

The American belted this one in this season but seemed completely non-plussed by his efforts. Meh.

5. Jose Luis Chilavert vs River Plate

The crazy Paraguayan scored plenty in his career but this humdinger has to go down as the best (although the opposition keeper does fall down suspiciously)

4. Paul Robinson vs Swindon

Dramatic stuff here from the former England keeper who scored a late equaliser in this Carling Cup tie then saved a decisive penalty in the resulting shoot-out. Phew!

3. Rogerio Ceni vs Corinthians

Believe it or not this was the Brazilian's 100th goal of his career, which now totals a staggering 103. Take that Emile Heskey!

2. Andres Palop vs Shakhtar Donetsk

The Sevilla kepeeper elevated himself to legend status with an injury-time bullet header against Shakhtar in the 2007 Uefa Cup to help earn progress to the quarter-finals.

1. Jimmy Glass vs Plymouth

But the greatest goal from a goalkeeper comes from the English lower leagues where on loan Jimmy Glass smashed in a last minute goal to save Carlisle from relegation to non-league football. And he wasn't even offered a full-time deal afterwards. Harsh.
