Alberto Brignoli- First Goalkeeper to score in Serie A since Massimo Taibi (2001)

Benevento goalkeeper Alberto Brignoli wrote himself into the history books with his stoppage time header against Gennaro Gatuso’s AC Milan that gave his side their first EVER point in Serie A history.

Brignoli is on loan at Benevento from Juve, and the club’s other goal scorer in this 2-2 draw against Milan- Puscas, is a loanee from Inter.

Brignoli is also the first goalkeeper to score in Serie A since Massimo Taibi (Reggina) back on 1st April, 2001 (no, not an April Fool’s Joke!). There have been others too like Michelangelo Rampulla (Cremonese) in 1992, but goalies scoring goals, as you’d expect, are a rare breed
