Thomas Delaney scored an unbelievable scorpion kick goal during a Denmark training session on Tuesday.
The midfielder, who plays his club football for Borussia Dortmund, showed impeccable improvisation to send the ball into the top corner.
Denmark were undertaking a shooting drill, with Delaney seeing his original effort saved by the goalkeeper from close range.
The ‘keeper parried the ball back out towards the 29-year-old, who initially looked as if he was gearing himself up to smash the rebound into the net.
However, he re-adjusted and produced an inch-perfect scorpion kick that arrowed into the corner.
He immediately ran off in celebration. Although the clip then cuts out, we can guess he wasn’t in a rush to play it down.
Now imagine if he can re-produce a similar strike in a match situation this week?
Delaney and Denmark make strong start to World Cup qualifying
Denmark have had a positive week of international action, topping their World Cup qualifying group ahead of Wednesday’s crunch trip to Austria.
They have won both their games, including a 8-0 thrashing of Moldova on Sunday evening.
There were six different names on the scoresheet, including Nice forward Kasper Dolberg and Brentford midfielder Matthias Jensen.
The side also recorded an important 2-0 victory in Israel on Thursday.
Delaney did not feature on Sunday, although did play 88 minutes of the win in Tel Aviv.
He has regularly featured in Dortmund’s starting XI when available this season. He has made 14 Bundesliga appearances, scoring one goal.
The scorpion kick is not the first extraordinary goal that Delaney has scored in his career.
He once netted a thunderous strike for FC Copenhagen in a Champions League tie against Club Brugge back in 2016. Check it out from 2:35 in the video below:
