Its always memorable to see goalkeepers score in a game. Its always a moment of excitement as the player who is supposed to stay back and protect their own net, sends the ball flying into the net of the opposition, from free kick or a penalty. However, José Antonio Rodríguez of Guadalajara sent one using his hands!
The Mexican club, which competes in the Liga MX, took on CD Veracruz at home yesterday. As the match was about to end 2-1 for the hosts, Rodríguez’s long throw in the 94th minute went past the Veracruz defensive line, as the whole Akron Stadium cheered in astonishment.

This was the only goal José ever scored for Las Chivas, since his promotion to the senior team in 2011. The former Mexico under 23 is also an Olympic gold medalist, securing the medal at the 2012 London Summer Olympics.
The scoreline was opened up in the 45th minute by Veracruz center back Diego Chávez Collins. However, the hosts came back into the match, thanks to a brace from the Mexican hit man Alan Pulido, who scored in the 67th and 88th minute.
Guadalajara are now 10th in the league table with 25 points.
