Russian winger Norik Avdalyan scores unbelievable back-flip penalty AGAIN, we've never seen anything like it

He's done it again. Russian winger Norik Avdalyan has scored yet another back-flip penalty, almost identical to the one he went viral for 4 years ago.

It seems like it is becoming Avdalyan's trademark, as the 26-year-old left the keeper and players alike in awe with his acrobatic penalty kick. He can be seen in the clip with '007' on his back, pulling off a move that James Bond would be proud of.

In the video, Avdalyan is seen taking what looks to be a simple two-step run-up, before using the first step to push up and flip himself back, kicking the ball in the process. The ball flies into the centre of the goal, as the goalkeeper dives to his right and is left helpless as he can only watch as the ball goes past him.

Avdalyan then wheels away in celebration with his teammates, who appear to be amazed with what they have just seen, with one of his teammates even wearing a GoPro to give us an angle from the pitch itself.

The commentator was left shellshocked by what he had just witnessed, and even takes a five-second pause before simply saying: "Wow."

Granted, this goal may not be as visually pleasing as the first back-flip penalty he scored 4 years ago, as that one flew into the top right-hand corner but the fact that Avdalyan has managed to pull this off twice is more impressive in itself.

Avdalyan currently plays for Nefis Kazan, a side who play in the Russian Football National League 2. It is more of a feat too then, that this penalty was scored in a senior game, whereas his last back-flip penalty was scored in an U21 game.

Nefis Kazan's number 7 seems to have made this move his own, which begs the question: when is he going to pull it off again?
