A contender for the maddest penalty of the season was spotted in the Belgium second division on Saturday.
League leaders Mouscron-Péruwelz beat Hoogstraten 2-1 in front of their fans, but the goal scored by the visitors was something special.
With eight minutes remaining Hoogstraten won a penalty, and Glenn van der Linden took the responsibility from the spot. But there was a twist.
Mouscron keeper Alexandre Oukidja saved van der Linden’s penalty, only for the ball to repel back into the penalty-takers path and he ended up scoring an amazing overhead-kick golazo to eventually stick the ball in the back of the net.
