WATCH: Goalkeeper scores after punting ball across entire field

Most goalkeeper goals from open play come in one of two ways.

It’s either a last-second equalizer after a keeper has gone up for a stoppage-time set piece, like we’ve already seen in the NWSL this season. Or there’s the long clearance that accidentally embarrasses the opposing keeper, like Tim Howard’s infamous goal for Everton.

But this week’s playoffs in the Liga de Expansión MX has brought us a new category: the incredibly powerful and accurate punt that takes advantage of the aforementioned goalkeeper looking to score a stoppage-time set piece.

Celaya goalkeeper Guillermo Allison so nearly scored a goal of his own, but his header ended up right in Santiago Ramírez’s hands. The Club Atlético Morelia keeper then proceeded to punt the ball all the way across the entire dang field and into the dang net.


Ramírez’s goal helped seal a 4-2 aggregate win for Morelia, who will face Tapatío in the two-leg Clausura final.
