Jeremy Menez doesn't tend to score too many goals, but when he does by jingo they are special.

We can all remember his frankly outrageous backheel goal against Parma right? That was an act of sheer audacity, and the fact that it actually came off made it even better. The goal of the year prize is well and truly in the bag.


However this goal, scored during Milan's game against Roma last night would have pushed his previous effort all the way - had the linesman not committed treason against the Beautiful Game by raising his flag for offside.

The former Paris Saint-Germain man is sent racing through, and although he rounds the keeper , is pushed far too wide to get a shot away into the empty net. Or is he? Using the outside of his boot, the midfielder spins it from the touchline, around the post and into the net. Wonderful. Damn that pesky official.

Menez had a huge reputation in his home country, but never quite delivered on his obvious talent. It seems as though the 27-year-old has finally matured however - and is playing like most thought he could.
