Video: Goalkeeper blocks penalty kick with his face

Goalkeepers are the only players on a soccer field permitted to use any part of their body to touch the ball.

Bayern Munich keeper Tom Starke must have taken this to heart Saturday as he used his face to block a penatly kick by Nurnberg's Timmy Simon.

Watch as Starke takes one squarely to the dome in order to maintain the shutout. Now, that is what I call being a team player.

Bayern Munich wound up nailing down a 4-0 victory over Nurnberg.
