Video: Iranian keeper Alireza Beiranvand unleashes astonishing 70 yard throw
Iranian goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand probably has the longest reach in world football when it comes to throwing the ball forward. In this video, the goalkeeper throws a ball almost 70 yards forward as it takes out virtually all the opposition players.
It can be classified as one of the best counter-attacking moves ever. It could be said that Beiranvand is known for his long throws as he has demonstrated in the past as well.
The keeper’s insane sling-shot like throw is his trademark and could be his teammates' delight and a nightmare for the opposition teams.
To do justice to the keeper's incredible throw, the striker should have converted the chance and given an assist to the goalkeeper. Strangely a goalkeeper is in the news more for his monster throw rather than his shot-stopping abilities.
Watch how many opposition players are taken out with one swing of the arm. This goalkeeper’s throw is on a completely different level.
