There's nothing quite like seeing a goalkeeper score a goal. On the very rare occasions it does occur, it's usually a goalkeeper that has come up to attack a corner in an act of last minute desperation.
This one is a bit different though.
In a Norwegian second division match between Ullensaker/Kisa IL and Skeid, Ull/Kisa found themselves 1-0 down after 89 minutes. However, with a free-kick the guts of 35 yards out, their netminder Stefan Hagerup stepped forward. The goalkeeper unleashed what can only be described as a 'dinger' of a free, leaving his opposite number powerless in the Skeid goal. Check it out below:

Hagerup's goal acted as a catalyst for Ull/Kisa's recovery, with Vahmouti Diomande grabbing a winner in injury time. Hagerup's moment of magic had the lads on The Balls.ie Football Show salivating, so much so that the Norwegian netminder was gifted with the 'Scoundrel of the Week' award.
For this week's scoundrel of the week, we couldn't look beyond the goalkeeper who scored an absolute thunderbastard of a free-kick to equalise for his team in the last minute.

We salute you, Mr Hagerup, perhaps your talents are wasted in goal.
