We Can't Work Out How Youssouf Niakate Has Scored This Outrageous Backheel Flick
| Last updated
Just when you thought Zlatan Ibrahimovic or Dimitri Payet had scored the best goal of the weekend, you come across Youssouf Niakate's complete and utter filth
The 25-year old, who plays for Union SG, scored twice in his side's 2-0 Belgian First Division B victory over Roselare - the pick of the bunch being a sensational backheel half-volley to open the scoring. Being honest, we're struggling to comprehend how he's managed to pull it off.
The ball is floated in from the right and as it bounces it front of him just outside the six yards, he somehow manages to swivel and flick the ball into the top bins with his left foot.
It genuinely looks like a FIFA glitch where the player somehow manages to strike it with their other foot but he clearly means it.
If it doesn't get a Puskas Award nomination, then the game has well and truly gone.
It follows on from Fabio Quagliarella delightful flick volley for Sampdoria just ten days ago. The 35-year old has a knack for the spectacular but scored a sumptuous third in Sampdoria's shock 3-0 win over Napoli.
We have had some amazing goals on Eleven today, but this might be the cleverest of the lot. Stand up, @FQuagliarella27. It's @sampdoria 3, @sscnapoli 0, and you can catch the last 15 minutes on our Facebook Live. #SerieA #PureFootball pic.twitter.com/2QpQIDdcZQ- Eleven Sports (@ElevenSports_UK) September 2, 2018
He gets in front of Kalidou Koulibaly and then the finish is worthy of millions of fire emojis, as he guides it into the top corner from 12 yards out.
The former Juventus man then followed it up by a non-celebration, due it being against his former club.
