Goalkeepers don't score often, so when they do it invariably makes the highlight reel.

Paraguay's Jose Luis Chilavert used to be a demon from the dead ball, Socceroos star Mat Ryan has fancied a penalty from time to time too but South African keeper Oscarine Masuluke has put them all to shame.

The Baroka FC keeper scored a sensational match-leveller in the 96th minute of their South African Premier League game against Orlando Pirates with a goal which the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi would be proud of.

With his team trailing 1-0 with only seconds left on the clock, Masuluke made his way up the field to join his teammates for the final corner of the match.

Pirates goalkeeper Jackson Mabokgwane punched the ball in the direction of Masuluke, and it bounced once before he performed the bicycle kick from just inside the penalty area.

The strike looping Mabokgwane and dipping into the top right corner of the net.

Speaking after the game, Masuluke revealed that he played as a striker up until the age of 16, but that it was nonetheless "the most memorable goal in my whole career", according to kickoff.com.

"I am still shocked," he said. "When I woke up this morning I was still surprised.

"I still don't believe it. It's not something that I practice. It's just a decision I took at that moment."
