An unheard-of Spanish fourth division player recently scored a stunning individual goal which has drawn comparisons with Argentina legend Diego Maradona's famous strike against England in the 1986 World Cup.

Maradona's goal, widely considered one of the greatest goals ever scored, came in his side's 2-1 victory over England. The goal was slightly marred, however, by Maradona's infamous 'Hand of God' later on in the game.

Spaniard Quique Cubas scored a goal which has been compared to that spectacular effort from Maradona in his side's victory on Sunday, albeit on a much smaller stage.

He received the ball in his own half, using his strength and skill to shrug off an oncoming defender in the process, before nutmegging the same player.

He then gracefully skipped past two helpless defenders, before bamboozling the keeper with a well-executed dummy. All that was left was for Cubas to slide the ball into the gaping net.

My words cannot do it justice - watch it now!
