Goalkeeper Scores Injury-time Scorpion Overhead Kick Goal

A goalkeeper going up for a corner is one of the great sights of football, almost equal to outfield players going in goal.

If they get near the ball, that's brilliant, if they touch it, even better, and if they score, well that's the best. But to score in the last minute of a match with an overhead Rene Higuita-style scorpion kick? That's off the scale.

Spanish player Pedro, the second choice goalkeeper for Spanish fourth tier side Sariñena, managed to achieve this glorious feat in a match against Borja on Sunday. His ridiculous effort tied the game at 3-3 and ensured that he disappeared under a mountain of ecstatic teammates.

Watch below and check out our 10 Greatest Goalkeeping Goals to see how it matches against the best.
