Poor goalkeeper left stunned as incredible trick shot penalty sweeps the internet

There have been some amazing innovative spot-kicks taken over the years with Rabonas, Panenkas, switch-hits and even back-flip penalties being attempted with varying levels of success.

However, we at Toe Poke have never seen anything quite like this before.

Pulled off during an unidentified kick-about, the skilful penalty taker first sends the goalkeeper the wrong way with an audacious fake swing before back-heeling his effort into the net.

It'd be a shame to disallow it for the obvious encroachment, but rules are rules.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
