Top 10 goals scored by goalkeepers (with video evidence)

'Tis the season for goalies to get their name on the scoresheet. Like these special chaps…

1 Anonymous dude with a foot like a traction engine
This incredible goal makes me grin like an idiot every time I watch it. Undoubtedly the best ever goal scored by a 'keeper.

2 José Luis Chilavert
The world's most famous scoring goalkeeper is one of the small band of No.1s who have scored more than one goal - but then he did take free-kicks and penalties. The Paraguayan scored an amazing 62 goals in his pro career, a few of which you can watch here:

3 Rogerio Ceni
The only genuine rival to Chilavert's crown, Ceni is still playing, for Sao Paulo in Brazil. He has actually scored more goals than Chilavert. Ceni's tally currently stands at 69 (tee-hee), the most by any 'keeper in the history of the game.

4 Peter Schmeichel
The Great Dane can't match the scoring feats of Chilavert or Ceni, but he did manage to finish his playing career with 10 goals, including this volley, which any striker would be proud of:

5 Hans-Jorg Butt
You have to laugh…

6 Luis Martinez
Columbia's keeper puts one over on Poland's Tomasz Kuszczak. Now I see what Fergie saw in the Pole. Great commentary too.

7 Some Japanese dude
A carbon copy of Paul Robinson's recent effort.

8 Mark Crossley…
…Rises like a wardrobe to equalise.

9 High-school soccer dude
Posted recently on Pies but worth its place.

10 John Kluba
No, we'd not heard of the Continental Indoor Soccer League either. But well done John. Go Twisters!

What is the obsession with the American high school student? That has to be the worst football I've ever seen played.

The only other keeper I can think of who deserves a place on this list is Jorge Campos of Mexico, who scored 51 goals in his professional career.

It's comically bad, isn't it. That's why I like it.

No Jimmy Glass for Carlise? One of the best Goalies goals. Last Day of the season, last minute, kept them in the football league. Amazing celebrations. And he was only there on loan. Top Quality.

The commentary from the 6th movie(Martinez vs Kuszczak) is a fake... The sound is taken from a very poor tv commercial.
a polish commentator wouldn't be so glad I think after losing such a goal, would he?
