SCAM from the edge within 18 yards of the opponent is already impressive, let alone the edge of your PRIVATE area.
But that is exactly what happened in the Turkish second division on Sunday, when a Vanspor player found the back of the net. IN its own box.
Hamza Kucukkoylu arranged to secure a corner for his team with the intention of clearing the way down should the ball come to him.
And breaking the ball was what he did, and then some, gave it an almighty punch as it sat up invitingly towards him.
He sent the ball down the field, and it continued on, overtaking Inegol’s helplessness and bouncing back into the net.
Even the cameraman couldn’t keep up with his screams, with the ball nearly in orbit as it flew towards goal.
The match commentator could barely contain his excitement, and understandably Kucukkoylu’s Vanspor teammates couldn’t either.
He was destroyed by the whole team after being hit by a long-range missile.

Fans on social networks were also stunned by this effort.
An unbelieving fan reacted: “The man who hit the ball in space!”
Although others suggested that Kucukkoylu had help from the wind, sending the ball into the net.
One person wrote: “Looks like the wind helps a bit too.”
But with most standard pitches measuring 115 yards, that means it’s very likely that Kucukkoylu’s goal was from the best of 100 yards.
Even if he had a little support from the wind.
That effort was his second goal of the game, helping Vanspor win 3-1 in the Turkish second division.
How is that for a man of match performance.
