A goalkeeper scoring a goal is a rare feat. A goalkeeper scoring a world class header in the 95th minute in a massive Premier League game to keep you in the top four race is an altogether different thing.
Alisson Becker probably even have much right to go up for the final corner during his team's game at West Brom. After all, the score was 1-1.
He then nutted in an absolute worldie. Look at this for a goal.
Here it is... Alisson's remarkable header deep into injury-time that handed Liverpool an incredible 2-1 victory over West Brom! 🇧🇷 ⚽

The goal was enough to leave Liverpool in a strong position to secure Champions League football for next season.
Alisson was in tears after the final whistle, with this being a very tough season for him on a personal level. His father passed away suddenly in February, something that had a profound effect on the player.
With his third child also being born earlier this week, all the emotions came rushing out after the game.
