It may go down as the best goal ever scored by a goalkeeper, with Osacrine Masuluke’s magic moment salvaging a point for Baroka FC in their South African Super League clash against Orlando Pirates tonight.

With his side trailing heading into the final seconds of injury time, Masuluke made his way up for a set-piece and not only did he deliver the equalising goal, he produced one of the best finishes you will see anywhere in world football this year.

Contorting his body to fire an overhead kick to beat his opposite number Jackson Mabokgwane in the Pirates goal, it was an effort of sublime brilliance and sparked lavish celebrations that were entirely justified.
