Shakhtar Donetsk took the lead in remarkable fashion during their Europa League last-16 clash with Feyenoord on Thursday night.
A cagey game in Warsaw saw the sides level after almost 80 minutes of play until Shakhtar finally broke the deadlock. It was well worth the wait as Yaroslav Rakitskyi scored in remarkable fashion.
A whipped in corner in the 79th minute saw the defender look to head it in. He judged the flight of the ball all wrong as he threw himself forwards, but was fortunate to have the ball strike his buttocks before looping over the opposition goalkeeper.

The firm contact ensured his effort enough power to find the net, sparking wild celebrations as Rakitskyi claimed all the credit.
And despite his lower back arguably playing a major role in the goal, fans all made the same reference in relation to television personality and model Kim Kardashian – who famously possesses a particularly shapely derriere.
Do you think Kim Kardashian would make a good striker? Let us know in the comments section.
One Twitter user wrote: “Kim Kardashian would've been proud of that one!"
Another joked: “Kim K would of skyed that,” while a third quipped: “Sneaky bum time.”
A fourth added: “He scored a chip with his a**. No need to wait till next year, just give it the Puskas already!”
And a fifth joked: “The absolute cheek of it.”
Unfortunately for Shakhtar, they were the butt of the joke in the end as Feyenoord equalised courtesy of Ezequiel Bullaude in the 88th minute.
Feyenoord came agonisingly close to a second with Alireza Jahanbakhsh but failed to win, setting up a nail-biting second leg in Rotterdam.
