The Angers midfielder tied up a 2-0 victory for his side against Amiens with an outstanding chipped shot from long distance on Saturday

Thomas Mangani sealed a 2-0 victory for Angers over Amiens on Saturday with an inch-perfect long-range lob reminiscent of Memphis Depay's similar effort last season.

Angers were already a goal to the good when the midfielder pounced on a clearance by the opposition goalkeeper before hooking a shot in between the crossbar and the head of a desperate defender.

In March of the 2016-17 campaign, Lyon star Memphis hit the headlines with a similar goal - though the Dutchman's was from even further out.

Mangani and Enzo Crivelli scored to keep Angers unbeaten through two games with four points. Amiens, on the other hand, sit rock bottom after a pair of defeats.
