Is there anything more fun in football than witnessing a goalkeeper score?
Every time the No 1 is seen sprinting upfield for a late corner or free-kick, fans and neutrals alike inch closer to the edge of their seats, silently praying the unthinkable happens. And last weekend, it did happen.
With West Brom and Liverpool drawing 1-1, Trent Alexander-Arnold swung in a hopeful corner and goalkeeper Alisson leaped above everyone to head home for one of the most spectacular ends to a Premier League game.
So this week we wanted to learn more about goalkeepers.
This week, Tomo and Tommy are joined by Japan Times writer Dan Orlowitz to discuss the J.League, and why it is a league you should watch.
We are delighted to welcome our first guest this week! Masahiro Sugiyama joins us to talk about his career working in football, his experiences living around the world and how he studied English.
