French Handball Keeper Scores Ridiculous Goal (Video)

french handball keeper goal

In any sport, goalkeepers tend to be the victims of highlight reel goals, but every once in a while we encounter a situation where it is the goalie getting on the scoresheet.  We’ve seen it happen in hockey and soccer before, and now, you’re about to see it in the sport of handball.

However, this is no ordinary goaltender’s goal.  Not even close.

To put it in simple terms, this may be the greatest goal from a goaltender that we have ever seen in any sport.

It took place during a French handball match-up between US Ivry and Chambéry Savoie, as Ivry keeper Francois Xavier Chapon made a big save with his foot on a close range shot, and watched as the rebound soared the length of the court, over the opposing keeper’s head and into the back of the net.

It’s one of those things that you have to see to believe, so check it out:
