It’s only August, but the Eredivisie may have served up a contender for goal of the season.

PSV Eindhoven began the defence of their Dutch league title away to ADO Den Haag on Tuesday, and looked to have secured three points with seconds remaining.

But deep into injury time, the Den Haag goalkeeper Martin Hansen had other ideas.

He ran the length of the pitch in the 95th minute to join his teammates in attack as they prepared to launch a freekick into the opposition area.

As the ball came in a shin level, with his back to goal, the great Dane somehow managed to acrobatically backheel the ball into the PSV net, earning his side a point and entering footballing folklore.
