Striker spectacularly stacks it, scores goal anyway

At the end of the day, they all count.

Rapid Vienna's Philipp Schobesberger scored one of the more bizarre goals you're ever likely to see during his side's win against Viktoria Plzen in the Europa League last night.

Put through on goal, he took a lovely first touch but, just as he was approaching the keeper, he tripped over his own feet. Somehow the ball ricocheted off his knee to end up in the back of the onion bag. Truth be told, it was a lovely finish.

Even better, it turned out to be the winner, with Vienna triumphing 2-1.

Forget those hours of training, just learn how to fall over with style and you'll get results.
