Baroka's Oscarine Masuluke produced a spectacular last-minute bicycle kick to earn his side a point at Orlando Pirates in the South African Premier League - an impressive feat considering he is the club's goalkeeper.

Here, Press Association Sport looks at other notable stoppers to have found the back of net.

CHARLIE WILLIAMS

The Manchester City goalkeeper made history when he became the first number one to score with a drop-kick on April 14, 1900. Sunderland's Teddy Doig was the unfortunate man beaten at the other end.

PAT JENNINGS

The Northern Ireland international was one of the world's finest in his day but he also famously scored in the 1967 Charity Shield. Playing for Tottenham, Jennings unleashed a giant kick out of his hands which bounced over Manchester United's Alex Stepney and into the net.

PETER SHILTON

England's most capped player netted for Leicester with a long-distance effort against Southampton in a 5-1 win in October 1967.

JIMMY GLASS

Possibly the most dramatic goalkeeper goal ever scored came in May 1999 when, with Carlisle facing relegation from the Football League on the final day of the season and only seconds left on the clock, Glass - on loan from Swindon - went up for a corner and smashed home to seal a 2-1 win over Plymouth, saving the Cumbrians' status in the process.

PETER SCHMEICHEL

The great Dane scored 13 goals in his career, the most famous being Manchester United's equaliser from a corner in a UEFA Cup tie against Rotor Volgograd in 1996.

MART POOM

In September 2003, Sunderland's Mart Poom grabbed a dramatic equaliser against his old club Derby, heading in Sean Thornton's corner deep in stoppage time.

PAUL ROBINSON (x2)

Paul Robinson headed a last-minute equaliser for Leeds against Swindon in the Carling Cup in 2003 and four years later he scored in the closing stages of Tottenham's 3-1 win over Watford in the Premier League with a free-kick 75 yards from goal. The ball bounced in front of Hornets goalkeeper Ben Foster and went over his head and into the net.

MARK BOSNICH

In 1997 the former Aston Villa, Manchester United and Chelsea stopper buried Australia's final goal from the penalty spot as they beat the Solomon Islands 13-0 in a World Cup qualifier.

JOSE LUIS CHILAVERT

Paraguayan Chilavert was well known for his expertise at free-kicks and penalties and memorably curled home a set-piece against Argentina in 1998. He also became the first keeper to score a hat-trick when he achieved the feat for Velez Sarsfield against Ferro Carril Oeste.

BRAD FRIEDEL

In February 2004, in an away game against Charlton where Blackburn were beaten 3-2, Friedel scored a goal from open play in the 90th minute to level the game - only for Claus Jensen to net an even later winner for the Addicks.

ROGERIO CENI

The Brazilian, like Chilavert, was a dead-ball master and scored over 100 goals at club level in a Sao Paulo career spanning more than two decades which also saw him enter the club's top 10 goalscoring charts of all time.

ASMIR BEGOVIC

The Bosnian opened the scoring for Stoke after just 13 seconds when his long clearance was left by Dejan Lovren and Jose Fonte to run through to Artur Boruc in the Southampton goal. However the ball bounced over the Polish goalkeeper and into the net during their 1-1 draw in November 2013.
