Brazilian Goalkeeper Everson Curls In Belting Free-Kick Against Corinthians

Brazilian Goalkeeper Everson Curls In Belting Free-Kick Against Corinthians

On the anniversary of Rene Higuita being an absolute nutter and performing his trademark scorpion kick save to deny Jamie Redknapp against England in 1995, Brazilian goalkeeper Everson curled in a stunning free-kick to open the scoring against Corinthians.

Ceara were awarded a free-kick 18 minutes into the Brasileiro Serie A fixture and the man between the sticks raced up the field to take it.

It could have just been as a sort of decoy to confuse the opposition but the Ceara No.1 then proceeded to do his best impression of the legendary Rogerio Ceni, finding the top corner in exquisite fashion and celebrating wildly. Power and precision at its best.

The fact that it's emerged Ceni, a man who scored an utterly ridiculous 131 goals in his career despite his primary job being to stop goals going in with his hands, gives it a greater significance.

David Silva Curls In Stunning Free-Kick Against Bournemouth

published at6 months ago

It wasn't to be the winning goal but it was key in Ceara's shock 2-1 win. Still, as superb as it was, it's not the greatest goal we've seen by a goalkeeper.

Over in South Africa in December 2016, Oscarine Masuluke went up in the sixth minute of stoppage time with his side Baroka FC on the verge of losing to Orlando Pirates.

He was thrown into the mix for a corner with the aim of making a nuisance of himself but when the ball was cleared and fell into his path, with his back to goal, he netted an utterly outrageous overhead kick that flew into the top corner.

Masuluke then thrust his hips with his teammates around the corner flag in the wild, but perfectly acceptable celebrations for a goal of this ilk.

It has to be the greatest goal ever scored by a goalkeeper and it was only right it made the shortlist for the 2017 Puskas Award.
