Nordsjaelland striker Morten Nordstrand executed a stunning overhead kick to give his side a late equalizer against Copenhagen. In a match between last season's top two Danish Superliga clubs, reigning champions Copenhagen held a 2-1 lead over Nordsjaelland, who made their Champions League debut last season.

The lead was lost in the 83rd minute, when Nordstrand rose up to finish a long pass from the wing with a tremendous overhead kick that almost appeared to happen in slow motion. The ball found its way between the crossbar and the goalkeeper's late reaction to even the score at 2-2, where it would remain until the final whistle.

Who needs Wayne Rooney when you've got Morten Nordstrand?
