Look, goalkeepers rarely score goals and rightfully so. But this goal by Standard Liege (Belgium) keeper Sinan Bolat did more than just earn the Belgian champsions a draw in their final Champions Leauge match, it guaranteed them continued European tournament play in the Europa League. Even sweeter was that their opponent AZ Alkmaar, was the team they supplanted.
I guess the goal is worth probably another three or four million Euros for the year. The best part of this goal--it is actually a pretty good goal.
So for all you goalkeepers out there, just remember to practice those field skills.
Bolat ran more to get up for the free kick and in celebration that he usually does in a single match.
Congrats to Bolat and Standard Liege--this is what makes soccer beautiful.
