Torquay's Lucas Covolan joins famous list of goalscoring goalkeepers

Brazilian Covolan took the National League play-off final to extra time with his header.

Torquay goalkeeper Lucas Covolan scored a last-minute headed equaliser just as Hartlepool thought they had sealed promotion to Sky Bet League Two in Sunday's National League play-off final.

However, Pools persevered and went on to win a penalty shootout at Ashton Gate to end their four-year spell in non-league.

Here, the PA news agency takes a look at five other goalscoring keepers.

Pat Jennings

The Northern Ireland international was one of the world's finest in his day but he also famously scored in the 1967 Charity Shield. Playing for Tottenham, Jennings unleashed a giant kick out of his hands which bounced over Manchester United's Alex Stepney and into the net.

Jose Luis Chilavert

Paraguayan Chilavert was well known for his expertise at free-kicks and penalties, and memorably curled home a set-piece against Argentina in 1998. He also became the first keeper to score a hat-trick when he achieved the feat for Velez Sarsfield against Ferro Carril Oeste.

Jimmy Glass

Possibly the most dramatic 'stopper strike' ever occurred in May 1999 when, with Carlisle facing relegation from the Football League on the final day of the season and only seconds left on the clock, Glass – on loan from Swindon – went up for a corner and eventually smashed home to seal a 2-1 win over Plymouth – saving the Cumbrians' league status in the process.

Mart Poom

In September 2003, Sunderland's Mart Poom grabbed a dramatic equaliser against his old club Derby, heading in Sean Thornton's corner deep in stoppage time.

Alisson Becker

Alisson Becker headed a stunning stoppage-time goal to clinch Liverpool a 2-1 win at West Brom last month. The Brazilian dedicated the dramatic strike to his late father after becoming only the sixth keeper to score in the Premier League when he headed home Trent Alexander-Arnold's corner in the fifth minute of added time.
