The main objective of a goalkeeper is to prevent the opposing team from scoring. Occasionally, a goalkeeper can pick up an assist or a secondary assist.
But ever so rarely, something really damn weird happens and the player who mainly uses their gloves puts the ball in the back of the other team’s net. On-loan Hibernian goalkeeper Mark Oxley did just that in his club’s league opener.
Oh, and it was the eventual game-winning goal. Go on, Mark!
