Incredible inverted scorpion kick/flying backheel volley by Raul Jimenez (Mexico) wonderfully saved [GIF & Video]

Raul Jimenez almost added another Goal of the Season contender in Mexico’s 5-1 demolition of New Zealand in the World Cup play-off.

Netting a vital overhead kick winner last month for the National Team, he was almost at it again on Wednesday night.

At 1-0 the ball was crossed in and the 22 year old Mexican threw his body backwards before catching the ball sweetly with his heel.

It was heading towards the bottom corner but was saved magnificently by the New Zealand keeper.

Jimenez did score a simple header from the resulting corner.
