‘Tis the season for goalies to get their name on the scoresheet. Like these special chapsâ€¦

This incredible goal makes me grin like an idiot every time I watch it. Undoubtedly the best ever goal scored by a ‘keeper.
2 JosÃ© 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 laughâ€¦
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.

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