Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina showed his ability stretches much further than stopping shots at one end.

The Spanish international proved he’s capable of sticking the ball in at the other end with a spectacular overhead kick during training.

Reina appeared to be going about his business by practicing high-ball takes from corners, but instead opted to attempt an acrobatic bicycle kick inside his six-yard box.

And, as Luis Suarez watched on after whipping in the cross, the Anfield stopper smashed the ball home into the empty net with some style.

Reina will be happier with his clean sheet against Swansea City today (Sunday) than his training ground effort at Melwood, but if Brendan Rodgers is short of attacking options, then the former Villarreal star could be the unexpected man for the job!

Watch the video at the top of this story, and let us know the best goalscoring goalkeeper you’ve ever seen…
