And, yeah, it wasn't a bad effort...the ball from Lucas was pretty good too.

But Aussies are no strangers to a killer bicycle kick. Here are some of the best...


Mark Viduka's peak was probably the four he scored against Liverpool for Leeds United in 2000...but for a player often derided as big and ungainly, he showed poise and elegance with this bicycle kick against the Solomon Islands in 2005.

It was Guus Hiddink's first game in charge of the Socceroos and came in the final round of Oceania qualifying for the 2006 World Cup and deserved to win the World Cup in itself. Get in, big Dukes!


The A-League's seen a few overhead golazos too - like this one from the City sensation against Perth Glory in 2016.

The strike sparked controversy from some Glory fans over whether or not it was dangerous play to have his boot that high so close to the Perth defence.

But when it produces stunning spectacular goals like this, who cares about a minor bit of mild brain damage?
