Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos scored a goal of the season contender during Los Blancos' dominant 3-1 win over Celta Vigo on Saturday afternoon.
The German midfielder isn't exactly renowned for scoring goals but to the delight of his manager, Kroos' shot hit the underside of the bar before nestling in the back of the net.
He soon wheeled away in celebration as manager Zinedine Zidane put his hands to his head in utter disbelief.
What a hit, son.

Real Madrid opened the scoring through Karim Benzema in the 12th minute after great work from Gareth Bale down the left hand side.
Toni Kroos' incredible strike from range then made it 2-0 before Lucas Vasquez made it 3-0 win with ten minutes remaining.
Celta Vigo managed to find a consolation goal through Iker Losada before the full-time whistle, but Los Blancos walked away with all three points in their opening game of the season.

Perhaps the biggest surprise of the game involved Luka Modric, who was shown a straight red card for the first time in his 16 year senior career.
Do you think this is a red?
Luka Modric gets a red card :red_circle: for this?! Do you agree or disagree on the call #RealMadrid

Wow. Insanely harsh straight red card on Luka Modric. Should've been a yellow. VAR madness in LaLiga
