Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Antonio Gomis certainly won't forget his senior debut for the club in a hurry.
The 19-year-old made his first appearance for the Spanish club's senior team as they beat Numancia 4-0 in a pre-season friendly on Wednesday.
But instead of playing in his usual position in-between the sticks, Gomis was brought on as an outfield player in the 76th minute.
Atletico boss Diego Simeone was forced into the drastic move after defender Mario Hermoso was taken off with an ankle injury.
With Gomis the only available substitute left on his bench, Simeone opted to bring the third-choice goalkeeper on as an outfield player rather than ending the match with 10 players.
Gomis took to the pitch wearing the No 18 shirt of defender Felipe but would instead line-up in attack alongside Matheus Cunha.
And he caught the eye with a sensational piece of skill, managing to deceive a Numancia defender with a superb back-heel. Check it out below.

Atletico would go on to win the match 4-0 thanks to goals from Thomas Lemar, Angel Correa, Geoffrey Kondogbia and Cunha.
The situation involving Gomis, while rare, is not unique.
Back in 2016, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was forced to play goalkeeper Shamal George as an outfield player, coincidentally in a friendly against Atletico.
Another former Liverpool goalkeeper, Pepe Reina, once played in midfield for the Reds in a pre-season match against German side Kaiserslautern in 2016.

Meanwhile, former England international David James once famously played as a striker for Manchester City.
James was sent up front by manager Stuart Pearce as a final roll of the dice in a match against Middlesbrough on the last day of the 2004-05 season, as City attempted to secure qualification for the UEFA Cup.
It nearly paid off as James was involved in City being awarded a last-gasp penalty, but Robbie Fowler saw his spot-kick saved by Mark Schwarzer.
