Watch: Goalkeeper scores on long punt in injury time

Tuesday February 23rd, 2016

Here’s something you don’t see every day—a goalkeeper scored a crucial goal for his club on a punt from his own penalty area.

In injury time of Hemel Hempstead Town’s match in the Vanarama South semi-professional league, keeper Jamie Butler booted a ball into Sutton United’s net to earn his team a 2–2 draw.


That ball had some serious spin on it.
