Whilst the Nepalese National League isn’t renowned for its high-quality football, it certainly produced one of the goals of the season at the weekend.
Peter Segun was the player to deliver, with the African midfielder scoring a quite outrageous 40-yard half volley for NIBL Friends against RCT.
His 38th minute strike opened the scoring in a 3-0 victory, and is even more incredible when you consider the quality of the service being played on.
Whilst the likes of Messi, Van Persie and Ibrahimovic deliver the goods on carpet-like grass pitches, Segun’s strike came on a dirt pitch that does not look conducive to attractive football.
This effort certainly breaks that mould, with keeper Prem Tamang left scrambling after an initial corner was cleared. He certainly didn’t expect to get beaten in the top corner by an absolute rocket!
Watch the incredible strike at the top of this story, and let us know the best goal you’ve ever seen outside the top tiers of world football…
