WATCH: Keeper scores with outrageous overhead kick in injury time

Goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke scored a stunning goal in added time last night to rescue a point for his side Baroka FC.

They were trailing Orlando Pirates by a goal as the game in Johannesburg entered the 95th minute.

As is traditional, Masuluke headed upfield when his side were awarded a last-gasp corner.

Normally the best you can hope for from a keeper is that he’ll get his head to a cross, but Masuluke went for a far more dramatic finish.

When the ball fell to him after a poor clearance he produced an acrobatic kick, swinging his leg over his head to bury the ball into the back of the net.

He then produced an equally snazzy celebration - clearly, he’s been waiting to do this for some time.
