Bayern Munich's new signing Thiago Alcantara scored his first goal for his new team in unorthodox fashion at the weekend.
The Spanish under-21 captain that led his country to the 2013 UEFA European Championship last month, amazingly scoring a hat-trick in the final against Italy from midfield.
This made him even more popular with other teams around Europe which led to rumours linking him with a move away from Camp Nou in the summer transfer window.
The 22-year-old midfielder preferred a move to the German treble-winning team over Manchester United and has already made an impression to his new teammates by scoring a goal in the final of the Telekom Cup against Borussia Mönchengladbach.
The Spaniard has only been playing for the German champions for a week, but it seems he has already gelled in and is performing at an impressive level.
The Spanish youngster made his first appearance for Pep Guardiola’s side at the weekend in the semi-final of the Telekom Cup against Hamburg which Bayern won 4-0.
Franck Ribery, Philipp Lahm, Thiago Alcantara, Arjen Robben and Thomas Muller all found the back of the net as the European champions coasted to victory over Lucien Favre's men.
The pick of the bunch however was Thigo's goal because of the spectacular nature in which he scored it.
Jerome Boateng picked up the ball near the corner flag and whipped a ball in to the danger area, in which Thiago scored what seemed to be a diving-chest shot.
