This is the video of a late winning goal like no other - from a goal kick.

 

Argentine Matias Dituro kicked the ball the full length of the pitch and flying into the opposition net to win a match - five minutes into stoppage time.

 

Dituro, keeper for Bolivian team Bolivar of La Paz, left rival goalkeeper Carlos Franco of San Jose de Oruro scrambling and bewildered.

 

The opposing keeper had been in Dituro's area trying to help his side grab a late equaliser with Bolivia wining 2-1.

 

And Dituro took full advantage to grab an amazing goal to settle the match and win the the 12th Annual Bolivian Open Football Tournament for his side.

 

"I was the first one to be surprised with that goal," Dituro admitted afterwards. "It was also important for us to win the game against the strong pressure of San Jose to get a draw."

 

The wonder strike flew for virtually 100 yards before taking a few bounces into the net, much to the astonishment of the opposition defence – with their keeper still in the opposition half of the pitch.

 

The local press heaped praise on Dituro, exclaiming, "Goalkeeper Matias Dituro of Bolivar had the stadium in his pocket when he scored from goal to goal."

 

And the sensational shot-stopper has history with being a goal king having scored in November 2015 when he played for the 'Pumas," notching a late equaliser against Santiago Wanderers.

 

Bolivar are currently sitting top of the table of the Bolivian League with 28 points.
