A 40-yard Iranian tomahawk! Vouria Ghafouri (Naft Tehran) v Esteghlal

One of the goals of the weekend was scored in Iran on Saturday.

Naft Tehran ended up drawing 1-1 at home against Esteghlal, but only after the hosts scored a 89th minute equaliser from a surprising source.

With Naft Tehran searching for a late goal, the ball fell to centre-back Vouria Ghafouri on the halfway-line with virtually ever player on the pitch ahead of the defender.

With the pitch being so cluttered, Vouria Ghafouri opted to do the incredible as he let fly from fully 40-yards from goal. His effort couldn’t have been any better.

Watch Vouria Ghafouri’s 40-yard tomahawk golazo below.
