Video: Stunning backheel volley snatches draw

Published Add your comment

Who is Shahriyar Aliyev? Few would have been able to answer that question before Thursday's Baku derby, but the Azerbaijani has seen his star rise dramatically after a stunning backheeled volley in the 2-2 draw.

With Baku trailing Inter Baku 2-1 in the Azerbaijan Cup, Aliyev equalised in spectacular fashion when he diverted a cross over the bamboozled goalkeeper with expertly judged backheel.

It was a goal or real beauty, and one Aliyev is unlikely to be able to repeat, even if his teammates served the ball up on a plate all day.

Watch the goal in the video above, and thanks to 101GreatGoals for initially posting this.
