The Only Goal You Need to See This Weekend: Keeper Scores with Backwards Header

Note from goalkeepers to field players: This is how you get it done.

All of us have seen a keeper venture forward late in a match, attempting to score a dramatic late winner or equalizer for his team. And most of us have probably seen a keeper score a time or two.

Here's betting few have seen something like this.

In the video above, you can see French keeper Ali Ahamada scoring a 94th-minute equalizer for Toulouse against Rennes on Saturday. It doesn't sound anything all that special until you see Ahamada flick a no-look header neatly into the far corner while facing away from goal.

Hate if you want, but that takes serious talent—talent, in fact, that few field players can boast. That's why we're awarding Ahamada's goal with the coveted title of Set Piece's Goal of the Weekend.

Congrats, Ali. Now go rub it in your teammates' faces.

Ahamada's goal gave Toulouse a 2-2 draw after Rennes' Mevlut Erding had scored what appeared to be the winning goal in the 64th minute. Ben Yedder also scored for Toulouse, and Jonathan Pitroipa scored for Rennes.

The draw kept Toulouse in seventh place in France's Ligue 1, while Rennes remained in 18th place and the relegation zone.

Up next for Ahamada and Toulouse is a trip to Troyes this coming Saturday. Troyes, the only winless team in Ligue 1, sit dead last in the table with two points and 13 goals conceded.

So shall we expect a hat-trick from the incredible scoring keeper?
