Mexes: You only score a goal like that once in your career

The France international thoroughly enjoyed his stunning overhead kick in the San Siro side's important away win over the Belgian title-winners in the Champions League
Philippe Mexes was over the moon with his wondergoal in AC Milan's 3-1 Champions League win over Anderlecht on Wednesday, and says that he has never before scored such an incredible strike.

The France defender beat the Anderlecht goalkeeper with a stunning overhead kick from outside the area to gift the Rossoneri a 2-0 lead in the 71st minute, and help them on their way to a crucial Group C victory.

"I didn't know what was going to happen before [I scored], but after controlling the ball with my chest, the only thing to do was to give it a go," Mexes told

"Happily, it worked out for me. I scored some beautiful goals with Roma, but they are nothing in comparison.

"You only score a goal like that once in your career, especially as a defender.

"It's something to savour."

Mexes' strike against Anderlecht was his first goal of the season.
