VIDEO: Goalkeeper scores incredible last-minute backheel goal

Martin Hansen scores an incredible backheel volley goal for his club ADO Den Haag deep into stoppage time.

Martin Hansen scored that goal with aplomb

It's not often goalkeepers score goals and it's not often that those goals are in stoppage time and result in you saving your team championship points. 

Former Liverpool goalkeeper Martin Hansen – now playing for ADO Den Haag in the Netherlands – scored a 95th-minute equalising goal against PSV Eindhoven, report the BBC.

The Dane ran up towards the other goal after his team were awarded a free kick. Unlike trying to head it or generally try his luck by swinging his foot, he finished off the free kick expertly by volleying in backheel shot to the bottom corner of the goal. 

Midfield-prospect Adam Maher and Swiss-born Dutch forward, Luuk de Jong, gave PSV the lead twice after ADO Den Haag's Roland Alberg scored a controversial penalty offered. As the match went into extra-time, ADO started playing long balls in the hope of equalising but who would've thought that Hansen – the one usually supplying those long balls – would come up with the answer deep into stoppage time. 

Hansen never had the chance to feature for the Liverpool first team but while on loan at Bradford City, back in 2011, he did make four appearances. Given Liverpool's striking shortage, maybe Hansen should've stayed and switched out his gloves for a pair of strikers' boots.
