Goalscoring Goalies: Penalties edition

Inspired by the fact that in recent game, the goalkeeper scored from the penalty spot not once, not twice, but three times. I thought I would showcase some great goals scored from the penalty spot by goalkeepers.

Having scored from a penalty and be scored on from the spot by a goalkeeper, I have experienced the highs and lows.

It is an interesting proposition when the goalkeeper takes the penalty as he or she should know the different penalty saving techniques outlined here.

Even if you do not prove to be the best penalty taker on the team, or become one of the top five for a penalty shoot out, you may be called upon to take a penalty if and when your team get into a sudden death penalty shoot out. You could be the hero like Adrian in the video below.

Taylor is another one of your goalkeepers who recently scored for her team! The first player to take a kick in the shootout… completely intimidated the other goalie as she did it with her gloves on!

    Brilliant. That is so typical of Taylor. Looking forward to working with her again.
