Arturo Vidal scores goal from impossible angle during Bayern Munich training

It wasn't too long ago that videos of footballers scoring from behind the goal were taking the internet by storm.

Lionel Messi, Neymar and Paul Pogba all took part in the challenge, bending the ball around the post and into the back of the net from impossible angles.

It was Messi's attempt that particularly wowed football fans, scoring from 30 yards away and some 15 yards behind the goal after playing some keepy-uppy with Barcelona teammates Andres Iniesta and Sergio Busquets.

But what if I told you an even better behind-the-goal trick shot has now been scored?

That would appear to be the case after Bayern Munich's Arturo Vidal pulled off the feat from a frankly ridiculous angle during a recent training session (see below).


He wasn't even on the same pitch...

What's more is Vidal managed to not only kick the ball over a 20 ft fence separating the two pitches, but also apply enough back-spin to find the target.


If only the same magic had been present during Bayern's 1-1 draw with Cologne over the weekend, where the Bavarians dropped their first points of the season.

Carlo Ancelotti's men were in red-hot form heading into the clash having won their first five league games 15-1 on aggregate, but were held by a side challenging for European places.

In the aftermath of Bayern's draw, Ancelotti expressed disappointment at not winning.

"We controlled the game in the first half and deservedly took the lead," he said, "but Cologne played much better in the second half.

"We should have won the game, but Cologne also had their chances.

"Of course we are disappointed, but we shouldn't worry. We must not forget our great start to the season. We'll go again after the international break."

Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was similarly underwhelmed by what he saw at the Allianz Arena.

"We didn't play with enough tempo," the German added. "You cannot surprise a side like Cologne playing like that.

"This week we've lost to Atletico and only picked up a point against Cologne. I'll need a night at least to get over it."

Bayern remain top of the Bundesliga but are just three and four points ahead of Hertha Berlin and title rivals Borussia Dortmund respectively.
