On This Day In 2014: Harry Kane Became A Goalkeeper And It Didn't End Well

On This Day In 2014: Harry Kane Became A Goalkeeper And It Didn't End Well

He was labelled a 'one-season wonder' in his first competitive season at Tottenham Hotspur but the prolific Harry Kane has continued to prove his doubters wrong.

The 26-year-old has scored 28 goals in 43 games for England since making his debut in 2015, and has scooped a Premier League Golden Boot award, amongst other individual prizes.

But things were very different in 2014, especially in a game against Greek side Asteras Tripolis.

During his breakthrough season at the North London side, goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was sent off during this bizarre Europa League tie.

Kane, who had scored a hat-trick in the game, was eventually forced to put on the purple keeper jersey and go in net for the final minutes as Spurs had used all of their remaining substitutions.

But England's number nine isn't the only outfield player to try his luck in between the sticks.

From Niall Quinn saving a penalty for Manchester City to Rio Ferdinand trying to save a spot kick against Portsmouth in the 2008 FA Cup, more often than not, the outfield player isn't quite up to scratch in the goalkeeper department.

It's not very often an outfield player is forced to play in goal, but when they do, it's priceless entertainment.
