Nothing says the summer is here quite like a game of beach soccer. So take off your shoes and socks and roll up your trousers (you don't have to do this really) and enjoy what you're about to see.

Holland star Patrick Ax scored a contender for goal of the tournament during the first European Championship Beach Soccer qualifier against Italy, when he netted a sensational bicycle-kick goal.

His acrobatic effort in the third period of play to extend Holland's 4-3 lead, wouldn't have looked out of place in a normal football match.

And for that reason alone GiveMeSport thought it was worth sharing with you, to appreciate the skill and technique needed to produce such a wonderful piece of play.

Watch Patrick Ax's bicycle-kick goal in the video below - with thanks to for bringing it to our attention - and feel free to share any other beach soccer skills in the comment box provided!
