Dirty Tackle

Mouscron-Péruwelz maintained their place at the top of the Belgian second division on Saturday with a 2-1 victory over bottom-placed Hoogstraten VV. The struggling visitors earned their consolation goal in the 82nd minute thanks to a penalty that was more entertaining and unique than Andrea Pirlo kicking a Panenka with a ball made of snowflakes.

Hoogstraten midfielder Glenn van der Linden shot his spot kick straight at Mouscron-Péruwelz keeper Alexandre Oukidja, but the ball rebounded straight back to him. Instinctively, the 26-year-old Belgian teed himself up with a volley and dispatched an unstoppable overhead kick into the top corner.
