Honest to goodness, we don’t even know what you’d call the technique deployed here in the following piece of sorcery from teenage Newcastle Jets midfielder Riley McGree.

Believe us when we tell you, it’ll definitely take you a few watches before you even begin to get your head around this little storker…

McGee’s… instinctive scorpion-type overhead backheel lob volley from 20 yards (will that do?) was a 57th-minute equaliser for Jets, who had previously fallen behind to Melbourne City in the early knockings.

The best bit? The 19-year-old is only on a short-term emergency loan at the A-League club to cover an injury to Jake Adelson.

After this, parent club Club Brugge will probably be getting a few phone calls.
