This 96th-minute equalising bicycle kick from a goalkeeper is without question the most outrageous goal of 2016

Oscarine Masuluke is a goalkeeper who plays for Baroka FC – and this was him, but on a really good day.

With his side 1-0 down against Orlanda Pirates in the South African Premier Division, and extra time all but up, Masuluke made his way into the Pirates’ penalty area for a last-ditch corner.

The results were truly spectacular.

The 23-year-old latched onto his opposite number’s gloved clearance, allowed the ball to bounce, and then unleashed the future Puskas award-winning goal of the year to earn his side a draw.

The celebration’s a bit different as well, isn’t it?

That’s a 96th-minute, bicycle kick equaliser, scored by a goalkeeper. Nothing more, nothing less.
