Vicente Vuoso produced a real moment of magic for Atlas in their 3-3 draw against Club Tijuana last night (Friday).

The Mexican international striker - who spent a season at Manchester City without making an appearance - pulled his side back into a match they looked set to lose in the process, delivering the brilliant strike on 70 minutes.

Vuoso had already opened the scoring for his side early, but a hat-trick from Dario Benedetto appeared to be giving the three Liga MX points to the hosts.

Vuoso had other ideas, however, chesting the ball up in the air with his back to goal from roughly 18-yards out.

The 31-year-old proceeded to score an incredible overhead-kick, catching the keeper out with his quick effort and beating him low to the left.

And, the recovery was complete on 84 minutes, when Edson Rivera slotted home the equaliser.

There is little doubt what the moment of the match was though, and you can watch Vuoso's goal below. Let us know what you think is the best overhead-kick ever seen...
