Incredible Pelé-Style Backheel Goal

By Sunday evening you might have thought the weekend's football was done and dusted, but you'd have been very, very wrong.

A late kick-off in Serie A between AC Milan and Parma saw an incredible 5-4 victory for the Rossoneri, including a truly special goal from Jérémy Ménez to make it 5-3, who rounded the keeper in a Pelé-style before applying the coup de gras with a fantastic backheel flick.

But even that wasn't the end of the drama, with a Mattia De Sciglio backpass completely missed by Milan 'keeper Diego Costa, resulting in a hugely embarrassing own goal. Nonetheless, they held on to win 5-4 and record their second successive victory. We can't imagine they'll be involved in too many more entertaining matches this season.
