The Marseille star showed off his wonderful powers of improvisation by hooking a bouncing ball over his head and beyond the goalkeeper against Lorient

If there's one thing we have learned about Dimitri Payet over the past few years, it is that his goals are rarely boring.

From long-range rockets to curling free-kicks, there is not much that is beyond the Marseille star and France international in the final third of the pitch.

He will not have scored many in his career, however, while actually facing away from goal.

That's what the 29-year-old managed against Lorient on Sunday, somehow hooking a bouncing ball over his head and beyond the goalkeeper amid a penalty area melee.

It put Marseille 2-0 up after 19 minutes in an eventual 4-1 victory, with Rolando, Florian Thauvin and Morgan Sanson also on the scoresheet for the visitors.
