Watch: SA keeper’s stunning goal goes viral globally

We don’t often see PSL football clips go viral, but we’ve got our latest example in the form of a late-match goal by Baroka FC’s goalkeeper this week.

Oscarine Masuluke successfully performed a bicycle kick against Orlando Pirates, scoring a goal in the 95th minute to draw level.

The goal has quickly captured the attention of international media, with footage appearing on Digg, the Sydney Morning Herald, the Sun, the Daily Mail and more publications.

According to the Sowetan, Baroka FC has been “swamped” with calls from foreign press about Masuluke’s goal.

“I have had calls from 3am‚ even from Britain‚” Baroka media officer Jimmy Ngobeni told the publication.

“He is not answering calls. I know him — he’s not fond of interviews.”

Masuluke’s goal has been shared by the likes of the Daily Mail and Sydney Morning Herald

The goalkeeper told KickOff that he still couldn’t believe the goal.

“I still don’t believe it. It’s not something that I practice. It’s just decision I took at that moment. Fortunately it worked so well. I am still excited and can’t believe it. I feel great.”
