A brilliant volley you won’t have seen: Idir Ouali (Le Mans) vs Guingamp

The French second division supplied a ridiculously good volley on Saturday.

Le Mans, who are struggling at the wrong end of the Ligue 2 table, hosted Guingamp in a match that they won by a narrow 1-nil scoreline. The sole strike came from French-Algerian midfielder Idir Ouali in the 21st minute and it was worthy of winning any football match.

Ouali was picked out on the right hand side by a glorious pass that was pinged 40-yards cross-field. Then, rather than take a touch, the number 27 immediately volleyed the ball into the danger area were it arching majestically into the far top corner.
