The goalkeeper is a peculiar kind of beast.
Stranded on an island throughout his career, he mostly operates in a state of detachment from the rest of his teammates; always one dodgy save or lapse of concentration away from the bench, a loan or the ridicule of a fickle public. One day you're Iker Casillas, king of Madrid, the next you're on a plane to Porto... just another guy with Mickey Mouse gloves on.
It must f**k you up a bit, basically - so sometimes it's cool to see the keeper assume the role of the goalscoring hero for a change, as demonstrated below.
Playing for Bolívar in Bolivia's top division, goalkeeper Matías Dituro p***ed all over Club San José's dreams of a last-minute equaliser. Taking the ball and absolutely hammering it into the opposite goal to ensure a 3-1 win.
His opposite number, head down and hopelessly sprinting to try and avoid the ultimate embarrassment of his trade.
Loser, loser, loser.
