We love seeing goalies score goals, and happily we can now add Silvio Proto’s name alongside Peter Schmeichel, Andres Palop, Paul Robinson and many many others.
The setting was at the Olympisch Stadion, Antwerp, during Belgium’s late Sunday night meeting between Germinal Beerschot and AA Gent. The hosts initially lead through Dosunmu at the break, but Gent turned the game around thanks to a brace from Maric in the 41st and 81st minutes.
Starring defeat in the face, Germinal won a corner in injury time and, with nothing left to lose, keeper Proto was sent into the mix to cause havoc.

Goalscoring goalkeepers are one thing, but keeper’s who can out-play the opposition with their fancy footwork are equally as impressive.
With that being said, the second half of this post brings footage from Lazio’s 3-1 over Torino on Sunday from Serie A. The clip is rather self-explanatory, with Lazio’s Argentine shot-stopper Juan Pablo Carrizo caught showing off his ball skills under pressure from the Torino forward.
