Play of the day: 70-yard screamer

The likes of David Beckham and Xabi Alonso may have succeeded by scoring from the halfway line - but neither can compare their efforts to Senegalese defender Mor Diouf.

The SuperSport United stopper somehow hit an incredible 88th minute winner...from all of 70 yards out.

The Asba Premiership game in South Africa against Mamelodi Sundowns looked set to end in a goalless draw before Diouf picked up the ball in his own half and unleashed an unstoppable shot past keeper Wayne Sandilands to claim all three points.

For those thinking about trying this in their local club match this weekend, forget it. The most likely outcome is a torn quad and barrage of abuse.
