Goalkeeper nutmegs a man 90 yards away with the most ridiculous goal we’ve seen

Ok, now try doing the same thing again.

We’re real sticklers here, so we’ll normally only give a nutmeg credit if it was clearly deliberate.

There are exceptions, however, such as this effort from Salva, the goalkeeper for Spanish Tercera División outfit C.F. Pozuelo de Alarcón.

Salva scored the only goal of the game away to Villanueva del Pardillo, which ought to be significant enough. You know, what with him being the goalkeeper and all.

But it gets better. The strike, from the edge of his own area, went through the legs of his opposite number as it hit the back of the Villanueva net after just one bounce.

90-yard nutmegs don’t roll around all that often, and nor does the sight of one goalkeeper scoring from open play, but remarkably it seems to be the second time that Salva has achieved the feat.

But, according to the match report, that first goal ‘many years ago’ was ruled out by the referee, perhaps explaining why it looks as though there was a second’s hesitation before he began his celebrations.

Just 200 spectators are thought to have been in attendance at Estadio Municipal de Los Pinos, where the match has played, but many more will have seen Salva’s goal online.
