Excerpt: José René Higuita (born 27 August 1966 in Medellín (Barrio Castilla) is a Colombian former football goalkeeper nicknamed El Loco ("The Madman"). Rene Higuita was well known for his 'sweeper' playing style taking risk in leaving his post empty to clear balls and even dribble. Unique and 'crazy' by his nickname, he stood out in history as one of the most unique and remarkable goal keepers of all time. Particularity for his creation of the Scorpion kick in 1995 in a friendly against England. He was often considered to be the 'master of the unpredictable'.

Higuita would often take set-pieces for the Colombian national team and became known for scoring directly from free-kicks, as well as penalties. In all, he scored 8 goals in his 68 international appearances.
