Emile Heskey occasionally had trouble finding the net during his time in England, but Australians have worked out why.

He's far more devastating if the goal is moving at speed on a train carriage, and he's aiming his shots from a field underneath a bridge.

Simple, really.

Heskey is the headline act in a promotional advert for next season's A-League in Australia.

The striker had an impressive season for the Newcastle Jets last year and, as a result, gets the big finale in the ad—even ahead of Alessandro Del Piero.
