Goals from keepers are rare in the world of football played on turf, but games on sand are a whole different ball game.
The smaller pitches allow for just about anybody involved to fire in shots from all angles.
Iran have proved that at the Beach Soccer World Cup, with the opening goal of the tournament proving to be an absolute screamer from a man normally more concerned with keeping efforts out.

Peyman Hosseini is the man in question, with three touches all that he required to control the ball, flick it into the air and fire into the top corner from 30 yards.
His spectacular strike helped Iran to open the competition with a 3-2 victory over Mexico.
The Beach Soccer World Cup is currently being staged in the Bahamas, with Portugal the reigning champions.
