Asmir Begović (100.5 yards)
The match between Stoke City and Southampton ended in a tie, but it was a tie no one would ever forget. Stoke City’s goalkeeper Asmir Begović shocked us all when he scored from a long goal kick. The goal that no one saw coming earned him a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest goal scored in football at 91.9 meters – which is the equivalent of 100.5 yards or 301 feet, 6 inches.
Matías Dituro (est. 95-100 yards)
Goalkeeper Matías Dituro ended the game with a bang by scoring this long goal from his own penalty area in the 95th minute. The final score was 3-1. While this goal was not officially measured, we estimate its distance at around 100 yards.
Tim Howard (est. 95-100 yards)
Tim Howard’s near-100-yard free kick against Bolton Wanderers earned him a spot on the list of goalkeepers who have scored from a far. Howard has referred to his goal as “cruel” and refused to celebrate out of sympathy against the opposing team’s goalkeeper, Adam Bogadan.
Andy Lonergan (est. 95-100 yards)
Andy Lonergan found the back of the net after scrambling to find open players out on the field. Beautiful punt on his side, terrible goalkeeping on the other side.

Those who showed up for a midweek friendly left with one memorable experience. San Jose Earthquakes backup goalkeeper David Bingham proved himself by showing everyone that goalkeepers can score too. This stunning goal started from a punt about 90 yards out and ended with nothing but excitement and cheer.
Paul Robinson (est. 80 yards)
Tottenham’s goalkeeper Paul Robinson added a 80-yard goal to his career after scoring his first-ever goal off a free kick against Watford. His first goal was for Leeds United when he headed in a goal against Swindon Town in a League Cup tie.
