There's every chance that you wouldn't have heard of UD Socuellamos forward Javi Gomez.

The attacker is currently plying his trade in Spain's third tier, but it's safe to say that he has well and truly come to prominence on the field of play? Why? Well, you only have to watch his latest goal to understand how he has quickly put himself in the limelight. 

One man you're probably all familiar with is Sweden captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic...we all know what he did to England a few years ago.

The PSG superstar's overhead kick was one that will be remembered for an extremely long time. 

But Gomez has well and truly rivaled his audacious strike. The attacker, despite being all of 30-yards away from goal, opted to take the ball on his chest and deliver a thunderous strike with his back to the net. 

Amazing goal 

We're really not quite sure how he did it, but there's every chance that it's now a contender for the next Puskas Award.

Anyway, you can see the outrageous goal for yourself here: 

The sublime goal may not have occurred in one of the biggest games around Europe over this past weekend, but it was an important strike nonetheless. 

Indeed, Gomez's overhead kick handed his side a 2-1 win over Arenas de Getxo in the Segunda B on Saturday.

In fact, the 33-year-old's latest goal means he now has netted on 13 occasions in 29 games this term. It's likely that this one was his best yet. 

2015 winner 

It was Brazil's Wendell Lira who overcame Argentine superstar Lionel Messi to secure the 2015 FIFA Puskas Award. 

After winning the award, as per ESPN, Lira stated: "It is an honour to be here to get know famous players I've only seen on the screen before. Lira said in accepting the award. "I thank my family and all those who voted for me. I should like to thank my wife and my daughter."
