Brazil great Rivaldo would have been proud of the goal scored in Ukraine this weekend, as it closely resembles one of his greatest strikes in a Barcelona shirt.

Chornomorets forward Franck Dja Djedje hit an unstoppable equaliser in his side's 2-1 win over Hoverla on Sunday.

A cross was sent into the box and was met by the head of midfielder Kirill Kovalchuk, cusioning it back to his teammate from the Ivory Coast; Dja Djedje controlled it on his chest with his back to goal, before unleashing and unstoppable bicycle kick into the top of the goal.

It was a special effort to get his team back into a match they would eventually win and reminded many of Rivaldo's sensational last minute winner against Valencia in 2001 on the last day of the season to take the Catalan club into the Champions League - relive that great strike here.
