Robert Lewandowski Scores Wonderful Overhead Kick With His Boots Untied, Give Him The Ballon d'Or Now

Six days before the Ballon d'Or is announced, the inevitable Robert Lewandowski has scored a magnificent overhead kick on a snowy Tuesday night in Ukraine - and he did so with his boots untied.

The 33-year-old Poland international, who has netted 29 goals in 24 appearances for club and country this season, scored for Bayern Munich in the first half of their Champions League Group E clash against Dynamo Kviv.

With his back to goal after a poor clearance from centre-back Ilya Zabarnyi, the experienced striker improvised and produced this moment of magic. Blimey.

Lewandowski, who has been directly involved in 10 goals in the Champions League so far this season, was a huge favourite for last year's Ballon d'Or after hitting 55 goals in Bayern Munich's treble-winning campaign.

Many believe he deserves to win this year's coveted prize, too, and after his performances in recent months.

In fact, former Ballon d'Or winner Luis Suarez has pledged to hand over his award to Lewandowski if he doesn't win the prize this year.

The 33-year-old knows he faces huge competition for the Ballon d'Or but believes his achievements speak for themselves.

"The possibility of winning the Ballon d'Or means a lot to me, it makes me feel proud," he told MARCA.

"If you look at everything I've achieved, not just this year, last year as well when they cancelled the ceremony, I've won a lot of titles, scored a lot of goals.

"It would mean a lot to me to win it, having won the Champions League, the Super Cup, the Club World Cup. Breaking Gerd Muller's record of 41 Bundesliga goals was also a big achievement, one which made me very proud and happy. Everyone can see what I have done and keep doing.

"My achievements speak for themselves because my last two years have been a big achievement, not just for me but for any player in history."
