You may have seen or heard about Neymar's incredible goal for Barcelona this weekend. Well it may not have even been the best goal of the week when you see this incredible effort from Inaki Williams of Athletic Bilbao.

Neymar scored what was widely believed to be the best goal as the Catalan giants scored from a lightning counter-attack in the last ten minutes to finish off opponents Villareal.

Luis Suarez picked out the Brazilian with a cross, who had one man to beat. He took one touch, flicked it over the defender and slid it below the goalkeeper, which sent the rest of the team, the bench and the Camp Nou wild.

The ball was fed forward to Williams, who somehow managed to his adjust his body to the awkward height of the ball in a split-second and loft the ball over the onrushing defender.

As the ball began to drop, the Spaniard had already started to turn and used his turn of pace to reach the ball before any defender could prevent him from shooting.

With the ball just millimetres off the floor, Williams struck it with the outside of his foot from twelve yards out into the far top corner with such precision that it left opposition goalkeeper Pau Sabata utterly helpless.

Here is the evidence of Williams' incredible turn and finish:
