At 6ft 3 inches, Nantes’ Algerian defender Ahmed Madouni is renowned for his heading ability. But his goal against Nimes in Friday’s Ligue 2 encounter came from a more unlikely source.
Stand-in skipper on the night stole away from his Nimes marker to meet an outswinging corner.
Arching his neck muscles back, he set himself up for what he obviously hoped would be a glancing header. The ball missed his head though, struck his shoulder, but somehow still managed to fly past the Nimes keeper and into the back of the net.
