Thwack!

We already have the Ligue 2 goal of the season and it's not even August yet.

Patrik Eler is a Czech striker, newly signed for Nancy from the magnificently-named Wacker Innsbruck, and this goal from his debut against Orleans will live for long in the memory.

The frontman lined up a free-kick from all of 35 yards and, when he let fly the ball stayed so hit that he don't know how Eler didn't burst the net.

This is frightening.
