Absa Premiership

WATCH: Baroka 'keeper scores with stunning bicycle kick

2016-12-01 07:43

Cape Town - Baroka FC goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke looks to have already ended the debate for Absa Premiership goal of the season as he scored a last-minute equaliser with a bicycle kick against Orlando Pirates on Wednesday night.

Baroka were trailing 1-0 when Masuluke ventured forward in the hopes of salvaging a point for his side as his team were awarded a corner. After his opposite number punched the ball clear from the resulting corner, Masuluke was first to the loose ball and with his back towards goal, hit a stunning bicycle kick from the edge of the 18-yard area.

The South African shot-stopper then even had enough wit about him to not run off like a mad man in celebration, but instead delivered some dance moves in a classy celebration before being mobbed by his team-mates.

Is this possibly the best-ever strike by a goalkeeper and an early contender for FIFA's Puskas award? 

The strike made international headlines as the UK's Telegraph shared the goal on their Twitter feed that saw it being retweeted more than 8 000 times.
