Philippe Mexes was over the moon with his wondergoal in AC Milan's 3-1 UEFA Champions League win over Anderlecht on Wednesday, and stressed that he has never before scored such an incredible strike.
The France defender found the back of the net with a stunning overhead kick from outside the area to gift the Rossoneri a 2-0 lead in the 71st minute, and help them on their way to a crucial Group C victory.
"I didn't know what was going to happen before [I scored], but after controlling the ball with my chest, the only thing to do was to give it a go," Mexes told Uefa.com. "Happily, it worked out for me. I scored some beautiful goals with Roma, but they are nothing in comparison.
"You only score a goal like that once in your career, especially as a defender. It's something to savor."
Mexes' strike against Anderlecht was his first goal of the season.
