It may only be September, but we're pretty sure the goal of the season has already been scored.

No, it's not a gem from Lionel Messi or a Cristiano Ronaldo rocket, but an unbelievable strike from Jurijs Žigajevs - a Latvian international plying his trade for Ventspils.

Playing in his side's 3-0 win over Spartak, the 27-year-old controlled a long past with his chest ten minutes into the second half.

With the ball looping perfectly into the air, Žigajevs launched an audacious overhead kick that rocketed into the top corner.

It really has to be seen to be believed. Trevor Sinclair would be proud...

Thanks to 101 Great Goals for bringing this one to our attention
