Haven't any other goalkeepers previously scored direct? I rather think that they have!

Yes, Steve Ogrizovic, back in 1986, for Coventry City direct from a goal kick.

 

I, er,  can't seem to remember what team it was that he scored against though . . .

There's been a few keepers that have scored goals directly from goal kicks.  I'm sure I remember Jim Brown doing it for the Blades.  In this instance however, Tom King's effort has been recognised by Guinness World Records as being the longest.

Pat Jennings and Peter Shilton have both scored goals with kicks from their own box. Jennings goal was against Man.Utd with Alex Stepney being the opposing keeper.
