Hats off to Hoogstraten VV midfielder Glenn van der Linden, who managed to stick away a penalty rebound in his side’s Belgian second division game with Mouscron-Peruwelz on Saturday with just about as much pizzazz as is humanly possible – smashing the loose ball past the keeper with an overhead kick…

EDIT: Damnit, the video has already been stripped down. Please accept this GIF version with our humblest apologies…


BOOF! Sadly for Van der Linden, his expertly dispatched acrobatic rebound counted for absolutely nothing as Hoogstraten went on to lose the game 2-1.

    The first touch to flick it up was even better than the finish.
