Goalkeepers are the only people, apart from Diego Maradona who are allowed to actually touch the ball with their hands and usually relish that specialness. Having to wear gardening gloves must detract somewhat from this joy, but most goalkeepers cradle the scooped-up ball as if it were the FA cup. Then they wave their arms about a bit and kick it the length of the field so that the goalkeeper of the opposing team can do the same for the entertainment of the spectators at the other end of the stadium. What goalkeepers are definitely not supposed to do is take a wild swing with their leg at a ball that is headed inexorably for their goal. Even I know that.
