Stop Everything, Someone Just Scored The Goal Of The Season

Saber Khelifa fights off a tackle then lobs the keeper from deep inside his own half. Take that, Beckham.

1. Here it is.

The Evian forward collects a cleared corner, fends off a Nice defender then hits a glorious shot over the well-placed opposition keeper’s head and into the back of the net. He was 10m inside his own half.

2. And here it is again from another angle.

The 26-year-old Tunisian international has made a strong case for scoring European football’s goal of the season - not to mention the best ‘from your own half lob’ of all time.

3. …It’s even more impressive than Beckham.

Who famously did this against Wimbledon when still a whippersnapper for Manchester United.

4. No wonder he reacted like this.

Congrats, Saber.
