Everyone loves a goalscoring goalkeeper. Step forward Kalle Rönkkö, who hit the headlines in Finland over the weekend, after he netted a sensational free-kick from all of 60 yards.

The 36-year-old veteran's pinpoint set piece - which was taken from inside his own half - was the standout moment from the lower league clash between Oululaisen Rotuaarin Pallon and Kerho 07, and is now rightly being celebrated around the world after the internet clip went viral.

Obviously there was an element of fortune about Rönkkö's long-range strike, with the opposition goalkeeper's handling understandably called into question.

But, we don't want to dwell on that for too long, and instead are willing to give the goalscoring gloveman his moment in the limelight.

Watch footage of Kalle Rönkkö's 60-yard free-kick goal in the video above - with thanks to for bringing it to our attention - and feel free to share your favourite goalkeeper goals in the comment box below.
