Yvan Wouandji, a blind footballer who has played for France in the Paralympics, scored a wonderful solo goal on Friday in a game against Germany.

The defender picked up the ball deep in his own half, beat three players, eased forward and drilled a fabulous shot right into the corner.

The celebration, wheeling away to the French staff and jumping onto the inflatable pitch boundaries to celebrate, was almost as good.

In blind football, the outfield players wear masks to make sure they have an equal lack of vision. The goalkeepers can be sighted, though it might not have made any difference given Wouandji's strike.
