In what turned out to be the only goal of the game, the Saudi wide-man cut in from the flank and unleashed a fierce strike past the goalkeeper

It took a spectacular effort from Saudi Arabia's Yahya Al Shehri to clinch a 1-0 victory over Iraq in World Cup Qualification on Tuesday.

Cutting in from the flank, the winger drove into the space left by the Iraq defenders and unleashed a powerful strike from the edge of the box.

Goalkeeper Mohammed Hameed almost got to it, though was unable to prevent it going in, such was the power it was struck with.

Watch the clip of the goal above now.
