You'd be hard pressed to find a better consolation for taking a well-struck football directly to the face than Odair Fortes' prize.

In Stade de Reims' Ligue 1 match against Lille on Sunday, Fortes successfully attempted to block a clearance in Lille's box. His effort was rewarded with likely a brutal headache and also one of the stranger goals in recent memory.

The ball rebounded off his face and back into the top corner of Lille's net. Take a bow, Fortes, you deserve it. 


Reims went on to win, 2-1.
