Djibril Cisse Once Hit A Penalty So Good It's Still Called The Best Spot Kick Ever Taken
Former France striker Djibril Cisse is perhaps best known for his outlandish hairstyles and having more clubs than Tiger Woods but put some respect on his name.
After all, the well-travelled frontman is responsible for the greatest penalty we've ever seen.
Forget Bruno Fernandes and his hop, skip and jump technique, or even a cheeky 'Panenka' down the middle - Cisse gave a lesson in spot-kick taking when playing for Panathinaikos.
He stepped up from 12 yards and struck the ball with some serious venom. You hear the phrase 'made the net bulge" quite a lot but it was genuinely true in this instance.
The ball stayed in the top right corner of the goal for a few seconds and it was incredibly satisfying.
Cisse turned out for Auxerre, Marseille and Bastia in Ligue One and hit 96 goals.

At Liverpool he won the Champions League and FA Cup and later played for Sunderland and QPR in the Premier League.
Cisse's most recent clubs were third division Swiss side Yverdon and A.C. Vicenza 1902 of Italy's Serie D, while he even ditched football for the DJ decks at one point.

He's retired on two occasions but Cisse expressed his interest in coming back in May - his goal being to reach a century of goals in the French top flight.
"I'm a goal scorer and I'm a man of numbers. I love to score goals and I'm on 96 goals in the French league," he told Sky Sports.
"I need four more goals and I need to do it before I die.
"It's something that I keep thinking about. People say, 'Djib, you had a good career and you won a lot of titles' but for me something is missing."
