Generally you would think that scoring a a goal from 75-yards out must be a truly fabulous effort. But the reality is that sometimes it is the result of a pure fluke aided by a large helping of useless goalkeeping who was found sleeping on the job.

And so it proved in the Russian second division at the weekend as KamAZ’s Aleksandr Kukanos launched a hopeful and aimless ball upfield, only for the defender to watch as his unlikely punt ended up in the back of the net.
