Can’t remember it? Let us explain.

Stefan Kiessling headed the ball into the side netting and put his hands on his head at the missed opportunity. However, the ball somehow snuck through the net and found itself in the goal. A few players celebrated and, despite Kiessling looking extremely sheepish, the goal was awarded with very few protests.

Kiessling later said: "I saw the ball fly in the direction of the side-netting. My view was blocked and I did not see the impact, but the ball was in the goal.

"My first thought was that the goalkeeper had turned it in himself. I thought of everything, but not really of a hole in the net."

The moment has racked up more than 15m views on the platform and can be seen below:

Incredible.
