Former Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker scored the winner for Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday, but who are the the five goalkeeper’s who have scored in Serie A?

Alisson secured three important points in the most sensational fashion at the Hawthorns, as he went up for a corner kick and scored the match-winning 2-1 goal with a header deep into stoppages.

A goalkeeper scoring is a rarity, especially in Italian football, where only five different shot stoppers have scored in the top division.

Alberto Brignoli is the last goalkeeper to score in the Italian top flight, when he helped Benevento win their first ever point in Serie A with a 2-2 draw against Milan.

Brignoli scored the equaliser in the 95th minute with a diving header at the Ciro Vigorito in December 2017.

Massimo Taibi played for Reggina in 2000-01, when he scored a late equaliser against Udinese in a 1-1 draw in the 24th round of fixtures in Serie A.

Michelangelo Rampulla headed home for Cremonese against Atalanta in 1991-92, when the visitors claimed a 1-1 draw in Bergamo in Week 22.

Antonio Rigamonti was one of the key players of a successful Como side, who gained promotion to Serie A and the goalkeeper scored six penalties in his career, three of them came in the Italian top flight.

Lucidio Sentimenti scored three goals in Serie A during stints at Juventus and Lazio. He first moved to the Bianconeri in 1942 and later spent five years with the Aquile too. He scored three goals in Serie A, all from the penalty spot.
