Asmir Begovic joins an exclusive club of goal-scoring goalkeepers

A look at the shot-stoppers to have got on the scoresheet

Asmir Begovic's first-minute goal for Stoke against Southampton grabbed the headlines - but he is far from the only goalkeeper to have hit the back of the net.

Press Association Sport looks at some other notable stoppers who scored.

CHARLIE WILLIAMS

The Manchester City keeper made history when he became the first number one to score with a drop-kick on April 14, 1900. Sunderland's Teddy Doig was the unfortunate man beaten at the other end.

PAT JENNINGS

The Northern Ireland keeper was one of the world's finest keepers 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 United's Alex Stepney and into the net.

PETER SHILTON

England's most capped player netted for Leicester with a long-distance effort against Southampton in a 5-1 win in October 1967.

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.

PETER SCHMEICHEL

The great Dane scored 13 goals in his career, the most famous being Manchester United's equaliser from a corner in a UEFA Cup tie against Rotor Volgograd in 1996.

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.

PAUL ROBINSON (x2)

Paul Robinson headed a last-minute equaliser for Leeds against Swindon in the Carling Cup in 2003 and four years later he scored in the closing stages of Tottenham's 3-1 win over Watford in the Premier League with a free-kick 75 yards from goal. The ball bounced in front of Hornets keeper Ben Foster and went over his head and into the net.

MARK BOSNICH

In 1997 the former Aston Villa, Manchester United and Chelsea stopper buried Australia's final goal from the penalty spot as they beat the Solomon Islands 13-0 in a World Cup qualifier.

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.

BRAD FRIEDEL

In February 2004, in an away game against Charlton where Blackburn were defeated 3-2, Friedel scored a goal from open play in the 90th minute to level the game - only for Claus Jensen to net an even later winner for the Addicks.
