A glitch in the matrix occurred at weekend over in Russia, where Volgar Astrakhan played host to Spartak Vladikavkaz in the third tier.

In a curious quirk of fate, the game was decided by a single goal from Volgar defender Roman Loktionov.

As impressive as Loktionov’s driven freekick was in and of itself, some fans couldn’t help but feel they’d seen it all before.

This was because they had.

Indeed, it quickly came to light that the 33-year-old veteran scored an almost identical goal exactly seven years ago, against the very same opponents, during the very same minute of the match (’17), and at the very same end of the very same stadium.
