1. Tim Howard
Distance: 101 yards
Match: Everton vs Bolton Wanderers
At the top of the lists, we have a goalkeeper for Premier League club Everton, Tim Howard. He scored his first professional goal in a match against Bolton, from inside his own goal mouth. The ball skipped over every single player and then bounced right in front of Bolton’s goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, and straight into the net assisted by the strong wind! He actually felt bad for the goal and refused to celebrate.
