Galatasaray head coach Fatih Terim was responsible for one of the most memorable highlights from day one of the Emirates Cup being hosted by Arsenal.

The 59-year-old Turk showcased a brilliant piece of skill when he served up a stunning scorpion kick in the final minute of his side's 1-0 victory over Portuguese opponents Porto.

With the ball flying out over his head for a throw-in, Terim swung a leg out behind him, and unbelievably retrieved it, sending it back onto the field of play.

His effort was greeted by loud applause and cheers from the Emirates Stadium faithful, bowled over by the Galatasaray manager's nifty footwork.

Who knows, he might have even played himself into contention for an Arsenal contract, if Arsene Wenger's woes in the transfer market continue to much longer!
